Poland’s elections to be held on June 28: PM

We are planning a presidential election on June 28; a later date would not be feasible due to the expiry of the current president's term, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Thursday.

“We want to fulfill our constitutional obligations and conduct these elections in accordance with the constitution, and today we plan to do so on June 28. A later date would not be advisable, because the term of office of the president ends on August 6th”, he said.

The head of government was also asked when the resolution of the National Election Commission regarding presidential elections would be published.

PM Morawiecki assured that the formal aspects are being analysed and will be presented to the public soon.

In a resolution adopted on May 10, the National Election Commission (PKW) stated that in the election of the President of the Republic of Poland scheduled for May 10 it was not possible to vote for candidates. At the same time, it was announced that the Marshal of the Sejm (lower parliament chamber) would set a date for new elections within 14 days of the publication of the PKW resolution.
