The outgoing incumbent added that he intends to establish an institute that would act as a foundation.
"I will absolutely not take part as a candidate in these elections, neither to the Sejm nor the Senate and will perform the important function of former president,” he said.
Komorowski added that "after my presidential tenure ends, I intend to apply to the court for registration of the Bronisław Komorowski Institute."
Andrzej Duda will be sworn in on 6 August. (jh)
