Poland’s National Electoral Commission confirmed that the results of Sunday’s three-part referendum are invalid due to low turnout. Only 7.8 percent of voters went to the polling stations, significantly below the 50 percent threshold.

The result was announced on Monday afternoon, with the final outcome in agreement with the partial result announced in the morning (7.48 percent). 30 million Poles were eligible to take part in the referendum, however, only 2384961 took part.

Poles were asked whether they approved of introducing single-member constituencies for Sejm (lower house of parliament) elections, whether the state should continue to finance political parties and whether a presumption in favour of the taxpayer should be introduced in disputes over tax law.
