In the presidential election in Poland last Sunday, National Conservative incumbent President Andrzej Duda received 43.5 percent of the vote.

 

The election commission announced the final official result on Tuesday.

For his challenger to the liberal-conservative coalition, Mayor of Warsaw Rafal Trzaskowski, 30.5 percent of the emperors voted.

Since none of the candidates achieved an absolute majority, Duda and Trzaskowski will have to compete in a second-round on July 12.

In the first round of voting, the turnout was 64.5 percent. This is one of the highest in elections in recent years, according to the chairman of the election committee.

This time, voters could also vote in writing because of the corona crisis.
