Deputy Marshal Malgorzata Kidawa-Blonska of the Sejm (inner chamber of parliament) garnered 340 of the 475 votes cast in Saturday’s congress of Poland's leading opposition party, the Liberal-Conservative Political Platform in the capital, as their presidential candidate for the May 2020 presidential election in the country, DW reports.

Kidawa-Blonska’s main rival, Poznan Mayor Jacek Jaskowiak, received just 125 votes.

The united candidate from the pro-government forces is incumbent President Andrzej Duda.
