WARSAW, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Bronislaw Komorowski gained 52.63 percent of the vote in Sunday's Polish presidential runoff, with 95 percent of the ballots counted, the state election commission said early Monday.
Komorowski, of the center-right Civic Platform party, is set to win the elections as projected in an exit poll conducted by TVP public television. The poll showed Komorowski mustering 53.1 percent of the vote.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the conservative Law and Justice party, received 47.37 per cent of the vote, the commission said. Full official results were expected Monday afternoon.
The commission put the voter turnout at some 55.3 per cent.
In the June 20 first-round presidential election, Komorowski, speaker of Poland's lower house of parliament and acting president, received 41.54 percent of the vote, while Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the twin brother of late Polish president Lech Kaczynski, received 36.46 percent.
According to election law, since no one secured an outright victory by garnering over 50 percent of the vote, a runoff between the two top contenders must be held in two weeks. A simple majority is needed to win the vote.

The presidential elections were originally to have been held in October. Komorowski decided to call for an early election in accordance with election law.
