Independent candidates in the lead
May 28, 2018   
Article's tools:

Poland's upcoming local elections will end in a victory of independent candidates in the majority of the country's large cities, newspaper Polska The Times writes of the results of its own poll conducted in the previous week together with pollster Osrodek Badawczy Dobra Opinia in 36 cities on over 10,000 respondents.
Only the largest cities will become fighting arenas of the main parties' nominees, the newspaper claims.
In Warsaw, a run-off is a foregone conclusion as the ruling party Law and Justice (PiS) candidate Patryk Jaki is expected to secure 31.2% of votes, whereas the opposition groupings Civic Platform (PO) and Nowoczesna nominee Rafal Trzaskowski is seen getting 40.2% of votes. Krakow will likely see its long-time president Jacek Majchrowski secure 40.1% of votes in the first round, beating the PiS candidate Malgorzata Wassermann with her predicted 28.2% result.
Wroclaw is in for a close fight between independent Jacek Sutryk and PO-backed Michal Kazimierz Ujazdowski, but the PiS nominee Miroslawa Stachowiak-Rozecka will follow close.
Lodz is expected to choose PO's Hanna Zdanowska in the first round. Gdansk will decide between Jaroslaw Walesa (PO) and Kacper Plazynski (PiS).
Under the Polish election law, a candidate has to secure outright majority in the first round in order to avoid a runoff.
