Because it is particularly hard to build a parliamentary majority, most governments are occasional coalitions of many parties (at least four, sometimes up to fifteen), and they rarely last longer than a year; with over two years of service, the current government of prime minister Jan Sacz is heading towards a post-war record.

Beginning in 1623, two Jewish Sejms existed: the Vaad Arba Artsot, which encompassed the Crown lands, and the Vaad Medinat Lita [Hebrew, Council of the State of Lithuania], which was the Sejm of Lithuanian Jews.
The Jewish Sejm was at first linked to the state’s attempts to centralize the Jewish communities, which was intended to facilitate tax collection, particularly since the number of Communities was constantly growing during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
The Jewish Sejm functioned until 1764, and was disbanded on the basis of a decision by the Polish Sejm, which argued it was not carrying out its primary function, which was to collect Jewish taxes.
