Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk began talks on forming a new coalition government Monday after his center-right Civic Platform became the first party to win a second consecutive term since the fall of communism in 1989. Poland's main opposition party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski's conservative-nationalist Law and Justice (PiS), whose calls for a tougher Polish stance toward historic foes Germany and Russia had rattled investors, won 30 percent of the vote.
