June 3, 2020

The Polish presidential election, originally scheduled for May 10 but postponed by the coronavirus pandemic, is scheduled to take place on Wednesday June 28, according to the official announcement by parliamentary spokeswoman Elzbieta Witek.

The previous elections were postponed just a few days before their celebration, following a political impulse in which the ruling law and justice party (PiS) advocated continuing the appointment at all costs, even if it only approved postal voting. .

The new regulations, which were adopted on Tuesday evening for the June 28 elections, allow voters to choose whether to vote by postal vote or to vote in person. However, according to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health, the election commission could impose voting by post in certain areas.
