We (almost) have a winner: According to exit polls, Bronislaw Komorowski appears to have beaten out his more traditionalist opponent, Jaroslaw Kaczynski of the Law and Justice Party, to win Poland's presidential election. Polls broadcast on the Polish public television station TVP reveal that Komorowski garnered 53.1 percent of the vote, while Kaczynski finished with 46.9 percent. On Sunday, Kaczynski, the identical twin brother of the late President Lech Kaczynski, who died in a plane crash in April, conceded and congratulated Komorowski on his win. "Polish democracy has won," Komorowski announced, urging Poland to forge a "national unity" in a nation where "divisions are too great.” With Komorowski’s likely victory, Poland's president will now be of the same party as its prime minister, a dynamic that will allow the PM to push forward with its legislative agenda.
