Poles will be voting for a new president on Sunday, 12 July. Incumbent president Andrzej Duda will face off against Warsaw Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski in the election’s second round. Originally planned for May, the election was postponed because of the covid-19 pandemic and political maneuvering.
What is at stake?
President Duda has been a steadfast supporter of the government’s transformation of Poland’s judiciary. The election of an opposition candidate as president would have fundamental implications for the rule of law in the EU.
Join us on 8 July at 9:30 CEST for a webinar. Our panelists will guide you through the latest developments and their implications.
