Krzysztof Sobolewski, the proxy of the election staff of Andrzej Duda, filed an electoral lawsuit against Rafał Trzaskowski today regarding the alleged lie the candidate of the Civic Coalition supposedly told during one of the election rallies.
“We demand the following rectification: ‘I, Rafał Trzaskowski, hereby declare that on June 14th 2020, during an election rally at the square in Wrocław, spread false information about the supposed million of Poles losing their jobs”, stated Sobolewski.
Trzaskowski himself believes the lawsuit to be absurd.
“There is absolute chaos among the ruling camp, they themselves do not know what lawsuit they want to file. We know exactly what we are accusing the public television of”, responded the current Mayor of Warsaw.
The last days of the campaign mainly revolve around the candidates meeting with the voters in different regions of the country, but also behind the scene meetings between politicians. Today, the Speaker of the Senate, Tomasz Grodzki said that both the Civic Coalition and the staff of the incumbent president Duda are conducting talks with the Confederation party about a possible transfer of votes in the second round of the elections.
Meanwhile, the staff of Szymon Hołownia, an independent candidate, proposed a civic debate with Andrzej Duda given the fact they will be meeting with their supporters in Białystok very close to each other and at a similar time.
“This morning, I sent a request to Joachim Brudziński, Andrzej Duda’s chief of staff, for us to meet at a civic debate. Since we are going to be only 300 metres apart from each other, Mr President should not hide in fear”, said Hołownia in a special video.
Robert Biedroń, the candidate of the Left, in turn presented a project for the bill on marriage equality and same-sex marriages.
“This here is a bill on marriage equality. It is a historic bill, never before proposed in the history of Polish parliamentarianism”, stated Biedroń at a press conference.
The staff of president Duda announced today his new election slogan: The president for Polish matters. The head of state running for re-election met with voters in Pińczów and Jędrzejów in the świętokrzyskie province. In Jędrzejów, Duda stressed that the rules of the United Right are the guarantee of Polish sovereignty.
“We are no longer in the Russian zone of influence. It changed in the last 5 years. Today, we are truly becoming independent from Russia, we will soon be able to cut ourselves off of them completely when we finish the construction of the Baltic pipeline. Then, we will be able to choose from whom we are purchasing gas”, said Duda.
In the latest survey published in today’s issue of “SuperExpress”, Andrzej Duda receives 40% of support, followed by Trzaskowski with 30% and Szymon Hołownia with almost 12%. Krzysztof Bosak is estimated to end up with 6%, similar to Kosiniak-Kamysz, and Robert Biedroń is closing the list with 3%. Other candidates would end up even below this result.
There are only 9 days left until the presidential elections in Poland.
