A Friday survey shows Poland's presidential race between business-friendly Bronislaw Komorowski and conservative Jaroslaw Kaczynski is too close to call. The final round of voting will start Sunday.

Komorowski is the candidate of the ruling centrist Civic Platform. So far, he's been seen as the front-runner, but is now expected to face a tight run-off.

Kaczynski leads the right-wing main opposition Law and Justice. Investors would prefer a win by Komorowski.

They expect him to work smoothly with the market-oriented government of Prime Minister Donald Tusk in curbing the budget deficit and public debt.

Komorowski also wants Poland to adopt the euro. His rival, Kaczynski opposes cutting state spending and privatization and is skeptical on the euro. In Poland, the government sets policies, but the president can propose and veto laws.
