Polish President Andrzej Duda said on Monday that he will retire from office in 2019.
Duda, 76, will step down after a third term as president.
His decision was announced by President Andra Basescu on Monday.
He said he plans to stay in the job as long as he is required by law.
“My final speech will be a final farewell to Poland and to the nation,” Duda told a ceremony in Warsaw.
“I will not leave this position, and I am confident that the citizens of Poland will always have my full support.”
Duda’s term will be the longest of any Polish president since the collapse of communism in 1989.
The Polish economy has been plagued by low inflation and unemployment.
