Polish President Duda claims victory in election run-off

In Poland, the run-off of the presidential election has been held and despite indecisive results of exit polls, incumbent President Duda has claimed the victory, Radio Polskie reports.

The official results are expected to be announced over the first days of this week. Duda, backed by Poland’s conservative government, received 50.4% of the vote, according to exit poll results published seconds after voting ended at 9pm.

Opposition-supported opponent challenger Rafał Trzaskowski, the mayor of Warsaw, received 49.6 percent, the Ipsos survey showed, yet the polling company has stated its exit poll results could vary by up to 2 percentage points from the final, official results.

“I promise I won’t disappoint you,”

Duda stated meeting jubilant supporters, thanking his wife and daughter and the conservative government which backed him in the presidential race. Meanwhile, Trzaskowski did not concede defeat, but noted he was waiting for the official results to be released.
