There will be a run-off

The news this morning is that although Poland's Parliamentary Speaker, Bronislaw Komorowski, is leading his opponent in the country's presidential election, the late Kaczynski's identical twin, Jaroslaw, he has not acquired the necessary 50 per cent of the vote. Therefore, there will be a run-off in two weeks' time.

AP reports:
Based on more than 94 percent of voting stations reporting, Komorowski had 41.22 percent of the votes and Kaczynski had 36.74 percent, the State Electoral Commission said. Turnout there was 54.85 percent.
The low turn-out is a little surprising, given the circumstances. Full results are expected later today.
