Poland’s prime minister said Thursday that his government is aiming for June 28 as the date of a presidential election that was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. reports citing foreign media that the election, in which conservative President Andrzej Duda is vying for reelection against nine other candidates, was originally set for May 10.

It was postponed four days before it was due to take place amid coronavirus restrictions and political infighting over how and when to hold the vote. The ruling coalition had pushed for an all-postal vote, but the necessary legislation was not ready.

The legislation currently being worked on in parliament would allow for the casting of ballots at voting stations and an optional postal vote.

Duda, whose term expires Aug. 6, is seeking reelection with the support of the ruling conservative Law and Justice party.
