Judges Reject Objections to Results of Polish Elections

Polish judges have rejected numerous complaints against the results of the Polish elections. Those presidential elections last month were narrowly lost by the opposition.

 

Among others, the opposition block Civic Platform of loser Rafal Trzaskowski went to the Supreme Court with complaints about irregularities.

In total, about 5800 complaints were received. The court found most of them invalid. About ninety were treated but rejected.

According to the court, the Civic Platform did not provide any evidence that the game had been cheated.

The bloc had alleged that money from the Treasury had been used for the campaign of reelected President Duda. The national broadcaster would also have been favoured.

According to some critics, judges of the Supreme Court are no longer independent but are under the influence of the government.
