Polish President Andrzej Duda announced he “won this first round with a big difference,” in Lowicz, central Poland, on Sunday night.
Duda needed 50 percent of vote to win the first round, and will now face Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski again on July 12 in a run-off vote. Exit polls suggest Duda received 41.8 percent of the vote, with Trzaskowski at 30.4 percent.
The presidential election was originally planned for May 10 but later postponed due to the coronavirus crisis.
Trzaskowski, the current mayor of Warsaw, is regarded as pro-EU and a supporter of LGBT+ rights, while Duda enjoys the support of the ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party.
