    A poll revealed that acting President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski is ahead of his closest rival Andrzej Duda in the pre-election ratings.

    WARSAW (Sputnik) — Acting President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski is ahead of his closest rival Andrzej Duda in the pre-election ratings, a poll revealed on Monday.

    Duda, a candidate from the biggest opposition party in Poland, Law and Justice, won 34.76 percent of the votes in the first round of the Poland's president election against 33.77 percent of the votes received by Komorowski.

    Some 47 percent of the respondents said they are ready to vote for the acting president in the second round that will take place on May 24, according to the poll carried out by the research organization Millward Brown.

    Duda received 44 percent of the polled perspective votes, the survey said. Seven percent of the interviewed are still undecided.

    The first round of the election carried out on May 10, saw a 49-percent voter turnout.

    On May 17, the first debates between the rivals took place, and apparently changed the balance as according to a last week's poll, Duda was likely to gather the majority of the votes.

    Millward Brown interviewed 1,256 people on May 18.
