In the presidential election in Poland, the previous incumbent Andrzey Duda, according to initial forecasts, missed direct re-election.

With 41,8 percent of the vote, Duda did not get the necessary absolute majority, as can be seen from the first projections. The conservative incumbent now has to run in a runoff election against the opposition challenger, Warsaw's liberal mayor Rafal Trzaskowski, on July 12.

Trzwaskowski won 30,4 percent of the vote in the first round. The presidential election was originally scheduled for May 10, but in view of the corona pandemic, the vote was rescheduled to June 28 against the will of the ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS).
