Bronislaw Komorowski, the candidate of Poland's ruling pro-business Civic Platform, looks certain to win Sunday's presidential election run-off. So far Komorowski has won 52.6 percent of votes, according to results based on 95 percent of the ballots.

Exit polls in Poland's presidential election on Sunday showed Komorowski with a slight edge over the late president's twin brother Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

As exit polls have a small margin of error, Komorowski began celebrating with a jubilant crowd of party members, while Kaczynski quickly conceded defeat.

Speaking after the exit polls were published, Poland's former Prime Minister said the result is positive for Poland.

Tadeusz Mazowiecki, Former Prime Minister, said,"Komorowski's victory means foreign policy will be reasonable. It will be an open policy towards all neighbors. It will mean strong involvement in the European Union, strong involvement and not being afraid of the union. As far as Polish-Russian relations are concerned important steps have been made and now is the time to go further."
