Poland's main opposition group, the center-right Civic Platform (PO), picked a party veteran known for building consensus Saturday as its contender to unseat nationalist ally Andrzej Duda in a presidential election next year. A former parliament speaker, Malgorzata Kidawa-Blonska, 62, is trailing Duda, 47, in opinion polls by a double-digit margin, but her party hopes she will be able to mobilize undecided voters at a time of deepening political polarization in Poland.Duda would win 46.2% of the vote, with Kidawa-Blonska trailing on 23.3%, according to a late-November poll by IBRiS for Polish daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna and private radio RMF FM.
