Polish southern city of Cracow will drop its bid for organizing 2022 Winter Olympic Games after a municipal referendum showed a majority of city population does not want Cracow to host the games, mayor Jacek Majchrowski said on Monday.

The results of the weekend vote showed that 70% of voters said "no" to bidding for the Games.

Majchrowski released a statement expressing his disappointment with the results blaming the lack of support on the original bid and a recent scandal within the bid team.

“When we launched our bid to host the Winter Olympics, we had a high level of public support,” he said.

Last month the bid leader Jagna Marczulajtis-Walczak resigned over allegations that her husband tried to bribe journalists into writing favorable stories.
