Incumbent Andrzej Duda on course for 2nd term with narrow victory in Poland’s runoff presidential vote

Polish President Andrzej Duda is leading the polls by a slim margin with the nationwide vote count nearly over. The election commission has said the final tally will not change significantly.

Duda, an ally of the ruling right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party, got 51.2 percent of the vote, the National Electoral Commission announced after counting nearly 99.7 percent of the ballots.

Local media quoted Commission Chairman Sylwester Marciniak as saying that the official results will not change significantly as the count is being finalized. This means that Duda is likely to be re-elected for a second term in office.

Duda’s opponent, Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski, the candidate from the center-right Civic Platform (PO), got 48.8 percent of the vote.
