Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz hearing exit poll results
Incumbent Mayor of Warsaw Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz likely won the capital city hall leadership in the first round of voting, with 51.6 percent, in the municipal elections Nov 21, an exit poll for TNS OBOP for Polish public television showed.

Her nearest rival, Czeslaw Bielecki of the main opposition party PiS, took 24.8 percent of the vote, the exit poll showed.

The Democratic Left Alliance’s (SLD) Wojciech Olejniczak received 12.9 percent and the third place.

If Gronkiewicz-Waltz fell below the 50 percent mark, a run-off vote will be held between Gronkiewicz-Waltz and Bielecki in two weeks.

The race for the position of Warsaw mayor was part of nationwide local elections in Poland in which government party PO Civic Platform took the highest portion of the vote nationwide for seats on Poland's 16 regional councils with 33.8 percent, the poll showed.

The lead opposition party, the conservative party PiS, came in second with 27 percent of the vote. Left-wing opposition party SLD got 15.8 percent of voter support while junior coalition peasant party PSL got 13.1 percent of vote.

PO took the most votes in 10 of the nation's 16 regions, while PiS led in the remaining six, the poll showed.
