No majority victor in Polish elections
The Polish presidential election was headed for a runoff with the top two candidates in the first round well short of the 50-per-cent threshold needed to avoid a second round, final results showed Monday, dpa reported.
Bronislaw Komorowski of the centre-right Civic Platform party got 41.54 percent of the vote, while Jaroslaw Kaczynski of the right-wing Law and Justice party received 36.46 per cent, according to election commission final results.
Some 54.94 per cent of Poles voted Sunday in the election for a successor to president Lech Kaczynski, Jaroslaw's twin brother, who died in a plane crash in April in Russia.
There were 30.8 million eligible voters and 25,774 polling stations throughout the country in the early elections, which had originally been slated for autumn.
