Andrzej Duda Secures Five More Years As President Of Poland

Andrzej Duda

It came close to the last after Sunday’s election, with only a few percentage points separating Andrzej Duda and challenger Trzaskowski.

It has required two rounds of elections and the counting of almost all votes before there is now clarity about the outcome of the Polish presidential election.

It has otherwise looked like a dead heat between incumbent President Andrzej Duda and challenger Rafal Trzaskowski of the Citizens Platform party.

99.97 percent of the vote is now counted, and official figures from the country’s Electoral Commission show that President Duda can now settle down and is looking forward to five more years in office.

With 51.2 percent of the vote, he wins narrowly over the more liberal mayor of Warsaw, Rafal Trzaskowski, who received 48.8 percent of the vote.

The chairman for election Commission have just stated that the few voices that have not yet been counted will not move at that result.

Last night, Andrzej Duda himself was in no doubt either:

Long live Poland. Winning the presidential election with a turnout of 70 percent is absolutely amazing. I am touched. Thanks to all my supporters, it sounded from Duda at an election meeting north of Warsaw after Sunday’s polls closed.
