Liberal mayor to second round in Polish presidential elections

The first round of the presidential elections in Poland took place on Sunday 28 June. The incumbent President of Poland Andrzej Duda of the Law and Justice Party (PiS) received 43,7% of the vote, followed by his biggest opponent Rafał Trzaskowski, who received 30,3% of the vote.

As no candidate received more than 50% of the vote share, there will be a second round, scheduled to take place on 12 July.

ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen congratulated Trzaskowski, Mayor of Warsaw, of his result and wished him well for the second round. While the situation in Poland has been a concern in recent years, given the country has violated many European democratic values and disrespected minority groups by setting up for example LGBTQIA-free zones, Trzaskowski’s agenda is focused on creating a more democratic and freer Poland.
