The second round of Poland's local elections started at 7 am Polish time on Sunday, the Polish state news agency PAP reported.

In the first round on April 7, the opposition conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party won the most votes in elections to Poland’s regional assemblies but was outrun by the government coalition in mayoral races in most major cities, including Warsaw, Gdańsk, Łódź and Katowice, according to electoral officials.

There is no threshold of 50 percent this time; the candidate with the most support wins.

Polling stations will open at 7 a.m. on Sunday and close at 9 p.m.
