Andrzej Duda of the opposition Law and Justice party will become the next President of Poland after winning elections on 24 May. Official results revealed that the incumbent, Bronislaw Komorowski, received 48.5 percent of votes, while Mr Duda received 51.5 percent. The Polish presidency is largely a ceremonial role, but the election result raises the prospect that the governing centrist Civic Platform party will lose power to Law and Justice in parliamentary elections, which are due in the autumn. This could have an impact on Poland’s relationship with the European Union, as the Law and Justice party is considered more Eurosceptic than Civic Platform.
