The Polish Supreme Court on Monday declared the presidential elections held in June, in which Andrzej Duda received a second term after rejecting the vast majority of complaints about alleged irregularities.
The spokesman for the Chamber of Extraordinary Control and Public Affairs of the Court, Aleksander Stepkowski, said the panel had examined almost all 5,800 complaints and added that there had been no change in results, the Polish newspaper Gazeta reports Wyborcza.
Rejected demands include the campaign by the Mayor of Warsaw, Rafal Trzaskowski, who asked that the vote be voided due to irregularities and the use of public funds to support Duda’s candidacy.
The court ruled that the opposition candidate’s campaign did not provide any evidence to support his claims before criticism of public media bias was dismissed. “The fact that voters choose a source of information … cannot be confused with manipulation,” he said, the German news agency DPA reports.
