Poland to hold presidential elections in May

The speaker of the Polish Sejm (lower house) announced on Wednesday that the first round of presidential elections in Poland will take place on May 10, and if a second round is needed, it will happen on May 24, ONA reports citing Xinhua.

An opinion poll by research firm IBRiS, reported by Polish media, showed that incumbent President Andrzej Duda would have the biggest chance of winning the elections.

According to the poll, 42 percent of respondents said they would vote for Duda, compared to 26 percent for Malgorzata Kidawa-Blonska, the candidate of the Civic Coalition, the largest opposition force. All other candidates who announced their participation in the first round of presidential elections could have below 10 percent of votes.
