The current President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, who is running for a second term, wins the second round of presidential elections held on Sunday, July 12. This is evidenced by the exit poll data after the polling stations were closed.
According to sociologists’ calculations, the incumbent head of state won 50.4% of the vote, thus outstripping the candidate from the opposition association “Civic Coalition”, Warsaw mayor Rafał Trzaskowski, who won 49.6% of the vote. The gap is 0.8%. Representatives of the Ipsos Centre said earlier that the statistical error of their research is about 2%.
Duda has already stated that he is glad to win the election, noting that winning the election with almost 70% turnout is an unprecedented event. For his part, Trzhaskovskyi is convinced that counting all the votes will show that he won.
The first partial official results of the second round are expected to be announced Monday morning. The final results should be announced by 23:00 local time on Tuesday.
The first round of elections was held on June 28. None of the candidates managed to get more than 50% of the vote.
