Poland’s election result still uncertain, more results possible on Monday

“We are gathering information and signals about different irregularities and we are still only talking about polls and only a percentage of results from the National Electoral Commission so we don’t have a full picture of the situation,” Tomasz Siemoniak, a PO member of parliament told Reuters.

Analysts said the election could be contested at the Supreme Court by either camp, given how close the result is expected to be.

When asked about the possibility of questioning the result, Siemoniak pointed to issues already noted by the media with Poles abroad not receiving their voting packages in time.

“The registration problems, the late election packages and the situation yesterday in Split, (Croatia) where at 10pm there was a six-hour line, according to what citizens who were waiting shared. This paints a picture of unpreparedness,” he said.

PiS officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The foreign ministry was also unavailable for comment.

The election was the first time all voters had a choice to cast ballots by mail, a change in rules necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic. (Reporting by Joanna Plucinska and Marcin Goclowski; Editing by Lincoln Feast.)
