Komorowski, 55, was former Polish minister of national defense between 2000 and 2001. From October 2005 he was a vice-speaker of the Sejm.

On Monday's voting in a plenary session of the Sejm, Komorowski's candidature, forwarded by PO was backed by 292 Members of the Parliament. Krzysztof Putra, the second candidate for the post, forwarded by the Law and Justice (PiS), received 160 votes.
