Warsaw, Poland Poland's right-wing president Andrzej Duda is fighting for a second term on Sunday, testing whether he is helped by a campaign of "ideology" that is dangerous to LGBT rights. Last. - President Donald Trump delivered a grand reception at the White House.


The coronavirus pandemic is another election test for prominent leaders in central Europe. Last weekend, Serbia's authoritarian rightist, Alexander Wu, tightened his grip on power in parliamentary elections, which were boycotted by opposition parties.

The Polish elections are widely viewed as an important test of democracy, in which case the 27-member EU is the fifth most populous country.

The crowded field of 11 candidates - all men - makes it difficult for anyone to reach the 50% required for Sunday's vote, in which case the runoff will be on July 12.

Duda is supported by law and justice and is popular with many for introducing nationalist, conservative party welfare programs. These policies have reduced the hardships of the old poles and left others in the dramatic economic transformation that followed the fall of communism in 1989.

Duda said at a rally on Friday that "Poland has changed, it has changed for the better," ensuring that the poles will have to work harder to achieve Western European living standards.

Duda, who has been in power since 2015, and both law and justice, have caused tension with the European Union and have sometimes led to street protests over controversial laws, giving the party control over top courts and other major law firms.

Trained as a lawyer, the 48-year-old signed a number of changes to the law, and his critics called him a "notary" or "pen", with some legal experts violating his constitution. Doing.

The European Union strongly condemns the legislation as a violation of democratic standards. This year, the American Freedom House Group left Poland with a "Unified Democracy" ranking for "Semi-Consolidated Democracy".

"The democratic state is in the process of completion," Jaroslav Kursky, editor of the Liberal daily Gazeta Vyborga, told readers this week, urging the election of a democratic candidate.

"If we, the citizens and the democrats do not mobilize, the next election will be 'democracy' in Belarus, Russia or Hungary."

According to polls, Duda's biggest challenge comes from the European Union's Rafael Trezakovsky, the Liberal Warsaw mayor and the pro-EU Citizens Forum Party.

From 2007–15, Donald Tusk held the top leadership role in Poland from 2014 to 2014 as Prime Minister of the European Council.

The Civic Platform promotes strong economic growth, but is now responsible for pro-market policies that help many businesses but eliminate poverty and increase economic inequality.

In the campaign trail, 48-year-old Trajakovsky pledged to re-establish constitutional provisions and keep popular law and order.

Trezkowski entered the race after the May 10 election due to an epidemic. Duda has received strong support after banning adulterated coverage in the public media and other candidates can campaign.

As he was losing support, Duda seized on family values ​​to protect Polish families from the spread of "LGBT ideology" in government agencies.

After Duda accused the LGBT rights movement of being more dangerous than communism, LGBT activists staged street protests, saying he agreed with another conservative politician, "Not LGBT people. Yes, it's an ideology."

Some Polish veterans of World War II, who opposed the Nazi German occupation, who viewed the polls as inhumane, denounced Doda as a new form of targeting LGBT people.

"There is a place for everybody in Poland," Duda said at a rally in recent days.

The election comes four days after Trump hosted the White House, praising Poland's "rule of law."

"He's doing a very good job." People in Poland think of his world, ”Trump said at a US press conference in Duda on Wednesday.

However, the trip to Washington was unsuccessful, and it is unclear whether Trump's explicit endorsement will win over insecure voters.
