At a time when Poland votes for the post-COVID post-Europe future

Polish citizens are voting in the presidential election to determine the fate of the nationalist turnaround of the Eastern European country.

After zeroing the ballot in May due to the coronavirus pandemic, Poland will have two rounds to decide whether to re-elect President Andrzej Duda on Sunday. The 27,000 polling stations for 30 million voters will close at 9am. (3pm EST), when the Exit Poll will be published.

The campaign became difficult for those who did not, as the virus crisis pushed Poland into its first recession in three decades. Opposition candidate Rafael Trajakovsky, Warsaw mayor, called his "We put it!" The rally wept, and Duda turned to known tactics as her popularity dwindled.

The president elected gay men, praised Catholic family values ​​, and even supported Donald Trump. Duda's partition of Poland is no stranger to politics, but when he tries for a second, the question of whether his declaration of government law and the Justice Party will achieve another victory and raise the alarm for Europe again.

"People vote because politicians remember them," said Magda Milehauska, 34, a teacher at Rawa Majolica, a town about 80,000 (50 miles) from Warsaw during the crisis. "Some are better than five years ago and this will affect their vote. Others say it is the 21st century and it is not true in all the hate and commentary."

The problem is the calf

Voting is an important moment for a country that has recently been recognized as a model of change from communism to emerging democracy. From a confrontation with the European Union to LGBT rights to the independence of the courts and media control, Poland has become a problem child.

Now that the country is deciding whether the leadership will get Carte Blanche to complete its project, the task of re-electing its project is to take over its power. The threat to the European Union with the coronavirus pandemic and its economic collapse is leading Poland to Poland, which has already been seen by many in Brussels as being lost.

According to the American think tank Freedom House, Poland's current trajectory is that it will not be considered a working democracy until the end of Duda's second term. "If this continues for another five years, Poland is likely to find itself outside the democratic community," said Freedom House research director Jeslike Sesaki.

Vote dude should lose. The poll shows that he still has a healthy lead and should win the first round, followed by Trezkowski. If a candidate wins at least half the vote on Sunday, voting until July 12 - the result indicates that the call is too close.

Amid concerns over the epidemic, more than 191,000 people registered to vote by mail, with another 370,000 votings abroad. Most international votes include Polish embassies and consulates in countries with high virus infection rates, and the UK and US. Like - voters decide not to open their doors.

Duda alleged that the LGBT community was threatening Polish families and that the government's social security pamphlets were a success. He visited the White House this week for talks with Trump. The US president praised Warsaw's spending on military equipment and its "Poland First" campaign in the European Union.


The meeting failed to draft a comprehensive defense agreement that Poland had long-held, but public television gave the tour a tremendous success and marked a turning point in the country's history.

The network - the main source of news for many poles - remains "a public-service broadcaster in the run-up election", serving as a government and presidential mouthpiece for elections worldwide. According to Media Watchdog Reporters Without Borders.

The loss of a duda can hamper the ability of law and justice to advance through certain laws. Although the party is not enough to override the presidential veto, the party has enough seats in parliament to pass laws.

The party has built up power by attacking "corrupt nobility" and promising a fair and secure country for ordinary citizens after decades of rapidly changing communism. But its five-year rule unveiled how unprecedented EU lawsuits can erode democratic values ​​and eliminate checks and balances on its power.

The Covid-19 crisis has hit unemployment and frustrated the ruling party narrative. Voter expectations for government relief are expanding and exposing the boundaries of the party's media apparatus.

Poland's ombudsman for human rights, Adam Bodnar, said the "masks were down." "The line that divides those in power and the rest of society is very clear."
