Chief of the Prime Minister’s Chancellery Michał Dworczyk told RMF.FM radio that he hopes that the presidential elections will take place on a date foreseen by the constitution, which would include May 10, May 17, or May 23. He added that the Polish government is doing everything to meet the May 10 date, which is the current deadline for the presidential elections.

Dworczyk admitted, however, that there is currently a difficult political situation due to the coronavirus and economic crisis leading to tensions around the elections, which could make May 10 an unfeasible date.

He believed that “a sense of responsibility for the state will prevail this week”, and MPs will vote to pass the postal voting bill which will be returned by the Polish Senate soon.
