Three Polish former PMs, Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz, Leszek Miller and Marek Belka on Thursday appealed for support for Civic Coalition presidential candidate Rafał Trzaskowski.

Trzaskowski will meet incumbent President Andrzej Duda in the July 12 presidential election run-off.

In a joint statement published on Facebook, the PMs argued that supporting Trzaskowski is the only "way to prevent further destruction of our state and national community."

"The presidential elections that will take place this Sunday have a unique dimension in Polish history. They will decide on a democratic and law-abiding system of our country and the freedoms and rights of the next generations," wrote the PMs.
