Poland's preparing for an election on Sunday to replace its former president, Lech Kaczinski, who was killed when his plane crashed in western Russia on April 10.

Many of the country's political elite died in the accident, but one of the people hoping to take over is a very familiar face, Jaroslaw , the twin brother of the late president.
