KIEV, May 26. /TASS/. Andrzej Duda, Poland’s president elect, has quit the opposition party Law and Justice of ex-prime minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, that nominated him to presidency.
Duda announced his decision at a party session. Meeting with voters earlier, he said it was a natural move for him. "Becoming Polish president, you cannot stay a party member," he said.
Andrzej Duda, a candidate from Law and Justice Party, won last Sunday’s presidential election runoff in Poland with 51.55% of the vote in his favor. A total of 8.630 million eligible voters supported him for presidency. His challenger President Bronislaw Komorowski got 48.45% of the vote.
Within the next two months he will remain president elect, while Komorowski will continue performing his presidential duties until August 6, when the new leader will be officially inaugurated.
