Poland

    In Poland’s June 20 presidential poll, Actinresident Bronislaw Komorowski won a lead of between 5 percent and 12 percent over Jaroslaw Kaczynski, twin brother of President Lech Kaczynski, who died in a plane crash last April. The election will go to a second round on July 4 since Komorowski was not able to secure the 50 percent required to win outright, The Guardian reports. The poll’s outcome will likely determine Poland’s position on the adoption of the euro, welfare reform, and its NATO force in Afghanistan.
