Six percent of Poles pointed to July as the best month for the elections, 6.5 percent indicated August, while 7.3 percent were in favour of a September date. An October option was supported by 5.8 percent of those polled, whereas 9 percent of people want the ballot to be held in November or later.

Rzeczpospolita wrote that on Monday three joint Senate committees are scheduled to resume their sittings on the electoral law.

According to the daily, the Senate will not prolong work on the bill and it will quickly go to the Lower House. This means that next Tuesday or Wednesday, the Speaker of the Lower House Elżbieta Witek will announce the presidential election and thus the campaign will begin in earnest.
