Bronisław Maria Komorowski (born 4 June 1952) is a Polish centre-right politician and the ex-President of Poland. He was elected on 5 July 2010, after President Lech Kaczyński died in a plane crash near Smolensk, Russia.[1]

Previously, Komorowski, who is a member of the Sejm since 1989, was an opposition activist during a period of communist rule, Minister of Defense (2000-2001) and Marshal of the Sejm (2007-2010).

A member of the old Polish nobility, he's related to, among others, General Tadeusz Bór-Komorowski, who led the Warsaw uprising during World War II, and to Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium.
