Polish citizens will cast their ballots this Sunday in a particularly emotional presidential election. Will you be voting?

The election was called after the death of president Lech Kaczynski in a plane crash in Russia on 10 April. Among the candidates to replace him is his twin brother Jaroslaw Kaczynski, from the Law and Justice party.

Mr Kaczynski, 60, was previously prime minister of Poland. He said he is standing despite his "personal pain", in order to continue his brother's mission.

His main rival for the presidency is Bronislaw Komorowski, the acting president of Poland. Among the other ten candidates are Grzegorz Napieralski from the Democratic Left Alliance, and Waldemar Pawlak from the Polish People's Party.
