  • Polish President Andrzej Duda has won five more years in power on a socially conservative, religious platform in a closely fought election that is likely to deepen Warsaw’s isolation in the European Union (EU).
  • Mr. Duda has largely backed the PiS policies.
  • Backed by PiS, Mr. Duda ran an acrimonious campaign in an election that was held despite the pandemic and was laced with homophobic language, attacks on private media and accusations that Mr. Trzaskowski serves foreign interests instead of Poland’s.
