WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland’s incumbent president Andrzej Duda widened his lead in the presidential election, an updated late poll showed, a victory which if confirmed would allow the ruling nationalists to deepen their conservative reforms.
The updated late poll combines exit poll data with official results for 90% of the polling stations that took part in the exit poll.
Duda, an ally of the ruling nationalists Law and Justice (PiS), received 51.0% of the vote, according to the updated late poll.
Liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski, the candidate of the largest opposition party, the centrist Civic Platform (PO), came second with 49.0%.
