(Reuters) - The election for alderman in a southern Mississippi city that ended in a tie was settled on amicable terms by drawing straws out of a hat, city officials said Friday. The special election for one of five alderman seats in Poplarville, with a population of about 2,800, ended in a 177-177 tie after one voter who showed up on Tuesday without photo ID, which is required under state law, later produced identification, said Glenn Bolin, who drew the long straw late on Thursday. "I guess it's bittersweet," said Bolin, a first-time candidate who ran without party affiliation. Bolin, who owns a towing company, and his opponent, Stephanie Bounds, a nurse, each made their selection.

The statement by Gaz-System S.A. suggests gas flows from Russian supplier Gazprom are once again meeting Poland's daily demand.
