Poland waits to find out who their new president will be as the counting of votes gets under way in the second round of the Polish Presidential elections.
Tonight at 2000 (CET) polling stations around Poland closed and the official count began in determining who will be Poland's next president.
Currently Poland believes it will be Bronislaw Komorowski after exit polls show him to have a slight lead over the other candidate Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
However, the exit polls shows that Komorowski's share of the vote is only slightly above Kaczynski's. A poll by TNS OBOP (for TVP public television) show's that Komorowski has 53.1% of the vote and Kaczynski 46.9%.
Another exit poll conducted by SMG/KRC (for the private TVN television) suggests that Komorowski's lead is not even that much with their results showing him with only 51.9% of the vote to Kaczynski's 48.9%. So while the exit polls suggest Komorowski will be the next president of Poland the Polish people will have to wait for most of the results to come in for it to be confirmed.
However, at 2300 (CET) with 20% of votes counted the share of the vote sat at Komorowski 50.6% and Kaczynski at 49.4%.
Turnout for the election has been put at 54.59%.
Update July 7, 2010: Komorowski won the election
