Polish Ballot Too Close to Call as Presidential Debate Looms

Updated on

Poland’s presidential election is turning into a cliffhanger, with the two candidates neck-and-neck as they go into their final debate on Thursday.

Three days before the runoff vote, President Bronislaw Komorowski has a lead of less than 3 percentage points over his opposition candidate Andrzej Duda in three of the four most recent opinion polls. The incumbent used a debate on Sunday to pull ahead after his challenger’s shock victory in the May 10 first round. One of the president’s advisers described Thursday’s bout as decisive.
