Poland: Voters share thoughts as polls open in delayed presidential election

Polls for the first round of the delayed 2020 Polish presidential election opened on Sunday. The election was originally planned for May 10 but later postponed due to the coronavirus crisis. Voters were seen casting their votes at a polling centre in Warsaw, while wearing masks and adhering to the distancing regulations. «I would like something to change,» said a voter outside the polling centre, before adding «I want to feel that I influence what is happening around.» Another voter seemed to be willing to vote for the current president Andrzej Duda, as he said «Duda! Just him! This is the only candidate you can vote for.» Incumbent President Duda is running as an independent candidate aligned with the Law and Justice party. He is predicted by some polls to have the support of around 40 per cent of the electorate. Meanwhile, his opponent from the Civic Platform, Rafal Trzaskowski, is estimated to have the support of around 30 per cent of voters.
