Polish elections will go ahead as President refuses to call state of emergency

Polish ruling party’s decision to go ahead with presidential elections scheduled for 10 May, has caused disagreements amongst the opposition. Although the country is in a state of “epidemiological emergency” with Covid-19 cases rising to 1,984, the nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party insists on keeping to the schedule.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
