Polish govt divided over holding mail-in presidential vote

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland’s government is divided and reportedly struggling for its survival over whether to hold a postal presidential election in May during the coronavirus pandemic. Poland’s parliament on Monday is expected to vote on a proposal put forward by ruling party leader to hold the May 10 election by postal vote. But one faction in the governing coalition is opposed to a mail-in vote and wants the election postponed until after the epidemic. The parliament had been expected to vote on the postal option on Friday but that got delayed by the disagreement. It was not yet clear if the sides would find a compromise.
