A large economic potential, the existence of important institutions like Pomeranian Tax Office or Pomeranian Chamber of Industry and Trade were of a great influence on the fact, that for many years of the between-wars period, Grudziądz was said to be with no doubt the economical capital of the Pomeranian Voivodship.
A good opportunity to present the economic potential of Grudziądz was the 1st Pomeranian Exhibition of Agriculture and Industry in 1925, which was officially opened by the contemporary President of the Republic of Poland – Stanisław Wojciechowski.
In the 20 years between the world wars Grudziądz was an important centre of culture and education as well as one of the biggest military garrisons with several military schools located both within the confines of the city and around it.

Crucially the reinstatement of Pilsudski was also opposed by President Wojciechowski, leading to a clear parting of the ways between the two men.
Sikorski, now Minister of War, proposed that the Inspector General be subordinated to the War Minister while the Chief of the General Staff would prepare operational plans at the behest of both the Inspector General and the War Minister.
Wojciechowski took Pilsudski off guard by saying that he, the President, was defending the honour of the Army and that any grievances which Pilsudski felt should be investigated by legal means.

In 1920 a counteroffensive by the Red Army forced the Poles to retreat westward almost to the suburbs of Warsaw, but Pilsudski, made marshal of Poland on 19 March 1920, conceived and directed a maneuver that in August brought victory to Poland.
Stanislaw Wojciechowski [15 Mar 1869 –; 09 Apr 1953], another of Pilsudski's old colleagues, was next elected president, the marshal agreeing to serve as chief of the general staff.
The parliament elected Pilsudski president of the republic on 31 May 1926, but he refused the honor, and another of his old friends, Ignacy Moscicki [01 Dec 1867 – 02 Oct 1946], was elected instead.

Therefore Pilsudski, made first marshal of Poland after the victory of 1920, first resigned from his position as head of the state in 1922, and later, in May, 1926, decided to interfere with a situation which in his opinion was also to affect the army and the security of the country.
He forced the president, Stanislaw Wojciechowski, and the cabinet of the peasant leader, Wincenty Witos, to resign, and until his death on May 12, 1935, he exercised full control of public affairs.
He had his coup legalized by the Diet, however, refused the presidency, to which at his suggestion Professor Ignacy Moscicki was elected (re-elected for another seven-year term in 1933), and was for most of the time formally in charge of military affairs only.
