José Manuel Barroso expressed his warmest congratulations to the president-elect of Poland, Mr Bronisław Komorowski, on his victory in yesterday's election. In his congratulation message he stated:
"I am sure that under your presidency, Poland will prosper ever more within the European Union, and continue to be a positive force for European democratic development. The many challenges faced by Poland and indeed by the EU today can best be tackled through good cooperation and communication between partners. You have given good examples during your political career of how these can be achieved and therefore we all look forward to your presidency.
