Poland’s highly-charged presidential election is too close to call and a bitter battle that pitted a conservative incumbent against a pro-European alternative is bound to get more complicated.



An exit poll showed President Andrzej Duda with a thin margin over his rival, Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski. Both men declared victory and the challenger’s campaign is talking of “irregularities” in voting and planning protests. The highest turnout since the fall of communism shows that Poles are hugely invested in the vote.



Duda’s exit-poll lead -- 51% to 49% -- doesn’t take into account nearly half a million votes by Poles living abroad that may favor the challenger. Official results may be published on Monday.

President Duda in the counting is now more than 500.000 votes ahead of the Russian Federation supported Candidate who has now lost the election, in the first round from Poles living abroad the majority went to Duda and ONLY the votes from Poles living in the UK, Russia and China went to the Russian Federation supported Candidate who has now lost the election.

President Duda has won reelection, which is a good situation. The congratulations from Ursula von der Leyen, who is head of The EU Commission:

Not a great deal of difference in 2020 from the 2015 Presidential Election result, when Duda beat Komorowski:

I wonder what Pollack would write Putin in the bulletin. Is it a form of masochism?

No. You know, not all Poles are russophobes, many of them prefer "Russian brothers" to Americans and Germans.

Yes, but that is illogical. During all times they were enemies (If we don't count the Sovit era when Poland didn't have a choice). And support Putin who play with former 'grandees' of Russia?

Yes, the relations between Slavic states never were simple, but they always have been relations between relatives.
Of course, the idea of Panslavism was more popular in the south Slavic states (even Russians are better than the Turks), but it is rather popular in West Slavic nations, too.

It is quite understandable that the South Slaves would prefer Russia rather than Turkey.
The idea of Panslavism is an idea utopia. The political mentality are too different between Western and Eastern Slavs.

To Russian people belong Russians, Ukrainians, Belorussians, probably Serbs too.
No one more.
Russians are too proud to be in an union with whores, traitors and thieves like polish.

It is great that the Tremendous Republic of Poland was able to beat back the Rainbow Plague.

Poland was a haircut away from the end of normalcy following Germany and other nations down into that sewer which many see as worse that communism.

Would you say it to Felix Dzierżyński, father-founder of VChK-NKVD-KGB-FSB?
Or to Adam Klincewicz, chairman of the Duma's Defence committee? Or to Dmitri Rogozin - chief of Roscosmos?

To think we went to war over Poland, spending a fortune in blood and treasure. What a waste.

Significant part of Russian culture was created by Poles, significant part of Polish culture has been based on the Russian one.
Now Pawel Kornew and Andrzej Sapkowski are much more popular in Poland and Russia, than Wolfgang Hohlbein in both of them.
And even in the terms of political culture, there were pretty good reasons to create V4 within the EU.
