    Janusz Palikot from Palikot's Movement Party speaks to media in Warsaw October 10, 2011. Centre-right leader Donald Tusk has become the first Polish prime minister since the fall of communism in 1989 to win a second consecutive term following his Civic Platform's election victory, nearly complete results showed on Monday. The success of Palikot's Support Movement, led by former PO lawmaker Janusz Palikot, signalled disaffection among younger voters and a challenge to the authority of the Catholic Church, which has long been venerated as a pillar of national identity.
