Polish President Andrzej Duda has been re-elected as Polish leader with a narrow lead over his liberal challenger Rafal Trzaskowsi, the BBC reported.

 

Duda, who won the first round of the presidential elections at the end of June, narrowly managed to beat the mayor of Warsaw, Trzaskowski, on Sunday with just over half the vote.

He received over 51 percent of the votes, Trzaskowski almost 49 percent, as it turned out when nearly all votes were counted.

The turnout was high in this ballot box, where the country of over 38 million people had to choose between Duda’s conservative nationalist policies of the Justice and Justice party (PiS) and liberal pro-European Trzaskowski, who was a candidate for the Civic platform.
