Komorowski Wins 41.5% of Polish Presidential Vote in First Round

June 20 (Bloomberg) -- Acting President Bronislaw Komorowski won the first round of Poland’s presidential election with 41.5 percent of the vote, falling short of the absolute majority needed to avoid a runoff, the State Elections Committee said today, summarizing final results of yesterday’s election.

Komorowski, the candidate of Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s Civic Platform party, will face Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of Poland’s largest opposition party Law & Justice, who received 36.5 percent of the vote, the Committee said at a news briefing in Warsaw. Grzegorz Napieralski of the Left Democratic Alliance was third with 13.7 percent of the vote, based on returns from 100 percent of the country’s voting districts.
