Poland's incumbent President Andrzej Duda, supported by the governing Law and Justice party, won 51.21 percent of the vote in Sunday's presidential run-off, based on 99.97 percent of precincts reporting. His rival Warsaw mayor Rafal Trzaskowski received 48.79 percent.

WARSAW, July 13 (Xinhua) -- Poland's incumbent President Andrzej Duda has won re-election after winning the second-round election, the National Electoral Commission (PKW) said on Monday.

The incumbent, supported by the governing Law and Justice party, won 51.21 percent of the vote in Sunday's presidential run-off, based on 99.97 percent of precincts reporting. His rival Warsaw mayor Rafal Trzaskowski received 48.79 percent. PKW head Sylwester Marciniak said that although five precincts, including Warsaw and some ballots cast abroad, still need to report, they will not influence the outcome.

The official turnout eventually stood at 68.12 percent, which is 0.08 percentage point short of the record set in 1995, according to the PKW.

Exit polls indicated a very tight race, with only a 0.8 percentage point lead for Duda in the initial tally. Two subsequent late polls however widened Duda's lead to 2 percentage points, which would all but guarantee him a second five-year term.

Strict sanitary rules are in place, with surfaces disinfected and people required to keep a safe distance from one another. Disabled people, pregnant women, people with children aged under three, and citizens over 60 will have priority access to polling stations.  ■
