The Supreme Court of Poland on Monday upheld the re-election of President Andrzej Duda. The court decided that complaints about the validity of the presidential election did not necessitate a rerun.The ruling paves the way for Duda to take the oath of office before both chambers of parliament on Thursday, AP reports. The court evaluated some 6,000 election complaints from voters as well as from the team of the candidate that Duda faced in a runoff, the liberal Warsaw mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.Duda won 51.03 percent of the vote and Trzaskowski 48.97 percent in the July 12 election.Ninety-two alleged violations were found to be justified, but the court said the irregularities did not affect the election’s outcome. The justices said the complaints from Trzaskowski’s team lacked the necessary evidence about the time and location of the alleged breaches.
