Incumbent leader Andrzej Duda remains the president of Poland. According to the recent data released by the country's Central Election Committee, he defeated Rafal Trzaskowski in the second round of presidential election that took place on July 12. TVN24 reported that on Monday.
As of Monday noon, the authority processed 99.97 percent of votes. Duda scored 51.21 percent, Trzaskowski 48.79 percent.
However, chairman of Polish Central Election Committee Sylwester Marciniak claimed that the official outcome of the election can not be made public, because the data was incomplete.
The turnout of voters made 68.12 percent, a record percentage for Poland.
You saw this amazing turnout, that's almost 70 percent. The victory in elections under such a turnout is unbelievable news. I'm very touched. Thanks to all my compatriots from the bottom of my heart", Duda said.
Earlier, we reported that according to exit poll data, Duda barely beat his opponent - by less than one percent of votes. However, there could be a statistical error, and so the results could not be made public yet.
