Polling Stations in Poland Open for 2nd-Round Voting in Local Elections

WARSAW Polling stations in Poland opened for second-round local election runoff voting in districts where no candidate got an absolute majority in the previous round.

Voters were called to elect mayors and local government members in important cities such as Gdansk, Krakow and Kielce.

Polling stations were scheduled to close at 9:00 pm local time (2000 GMT).

In the previous round, which took place on Oct. 21, the ruling Law and Justice party earned 254 seats in 16 provincial assemblies but lost control in major cities.

The liberal alliance, which consists of the Civic Platform and Nowoczesna party, won 194 seats and managed to capture some big cities including the capital Warsaw.

The turnout on Oct. 21 reached a record of 54.96 percent, the highest in the history of the Polish local elections, something that benefited the liberal platform, according to analysts.
