notably outgoing president Andrzej Duda.

“I cannot accept that an adult and mature person
be held responsible for such comments and the consequences thereof
flow, “added this mother of two homosexual boys.

to eliminate the communist ideology of the schools so that it does not
cannot be imposed on children (…), they did not

more destructive, “he said of his supporters during a
campaign meeting.

His opponent, the centrist mayor of Warsaw, Rafal
Trzaskowski, also 48 years old, made a commitment
