Boniek Wins Second Term as PZPN President

WARSAW, Poland. October 29 (PSN) –  Zbigniew Boniek on Friday was reelected as President for Poland’s Football Association (PZPN) for a second consecutive four-year term after winning an overwhelming majority of votes.

The former Polish international secured 99 of 115 votes placed.

His main competitor in the election was Jozef Wojciechowski, a well known controversial figure in Polish football after owning Polonia Warszawa from 2006 to 2012.

Media expected Wojciechowski to give Boniek a fierce fight for the PZPN Presidential title, but this all ended prematurely when he stormed out of the election session.

Wojciechowski was unimpressed with the electronic voting system to which he claimed it undermined the secrecy of the ballot.

Zbigniew Boniek, who was the favourite in the election race, will continue his presidency since 2012 without pause.
