Poles Hand President Komorowski Shock Defeat in First-Round

Updated on

Polish leader Bronislaw Komorowski is facing an uphill battle to save his presidency after a shock defeat in the first round of elections.

Komorowski’s support has melted from more than 60 percent three months ago to 32.2 percent in Sunday’s vote, slipping behind opposition candidate Andrzej Duda, who got 34.8 percent, according to an exit poll by polling company Ipsos. They will face each other in a May 24 runoff.
