Andrzej Duda took office for a second term as President of Poland this Thursday, on a day the government announced its return to restrictive measures amid the rise in coronavirus infections.

Duda used his inaugural address to assert the legitimacy of his victory over opposition candidate Rafal Trzaskowski with 51 to 48 percent of the vote in the July 12 elections.
Last Monday, the Supreme Court approved a second term for Duda after ruling out the nearly 6,000 complaints about alleged irregularities during the election.
