Run-off to decide Polish presidency

The late Polish president's twin is headed for a run-off with the moderate, pro-European leader who took his brother's place after he died in a plane crash.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski and interim President Bronislaw Komorowski will face each other on July 4 after neither was able muster the 50% needed for outright victory.

Mr Kaczynski's policies are essentially identical to those of his brother.

Lech Kaczynski was killed along with his wife and 95 other people in the crash of a plane trying to land in fog in Russia on April 10.
