The campaign route of President Andrzej Duda seeking re-election has been planned out, he will be active until its very end but there is no time for any debate with his rival in the runoff vote, Duda's election staff member Radoslaw Fogiel said on Wednesday.

"We want to be everywhere it is possible, we want to be with Poles, we want to be everywhere we can mobilise voters to participate in the election," said Fogiel, a deputy sokesman for the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party.

He added that the majority of surveys indicated that Duda and his opponent, Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski, the centrist Civic Coalition (KO) candidate, were running head-to-head in the race for president and said that "every 100,000 votes can make a difference."

According to him, there was still a lot of work to be done in the final stretch and no room on the calendar to organise a debate between the two candidates before the second round on July 12.
