Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk claims poll victory

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has claimed victory in parliamentary polls after exit polls gave a clear lead to his Civic Platform party.

Mr Tusk's party, and its current coalition partner, the Peasants' Party, have won enough seats for a second term, preliminary results suggests.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of the Law and Justice party, conceded defeat.

If confirmed, it makes Mr Tusk's party the first to win two consecutive terms since the fall of communism.
