- Poland election: latest updates
Poland’s tightly fought and intensely polarising presidential election has gone down to the wire as an exit poll showed the incumbent, Andrzej Duda, leading his liberal challenger, Rafał Trzaskowski, by less than one percentage point, on 50.4% to 49.6%.
The figures were well within the poll’s margin of error of 2%, meaning the outcome was still up in the air on Sunday evening. Results are due to come in gradually overnight, with the final totals due on Monday morning.
