Poles went to the ballot box on June 28 to vote in a delayed presidential election amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The voting was held with virus prevention measures in place.

“We’ve managed to pull off a safe election,” Polish Deputy Health Minister Janusz Cieszyński told reporters on Monday.

He added that polling station officials throughout the country had been provided with personal protective gear, including 5 million pairs of gloves, hundreds of thousands of litres of disinfectant and an extensive supply of face masks.

Cieszyński also said that efforts had been made to ensure that people were not crowding inside polling stations.

Overall, “voting at a polling station was safer than visiting a store or some other public building,” he asserted.

Voter turnout in Sunday’s election was a record 64.51 percent, according to the National Electoral Commission.

Polish voters will head to the ballot box again next month after no presidential candidate won an outright majority in the first round of voting on Sunday.

Conservative incumbent Andrzej Duda will face centrist challenger Rafał Trzaskowski in a runoff election on July 12.
