Club (Parliament of Poland)
A club is a sort of parliamentary group in the parliamentary system of the Republic of Poland. In accordance to the Sejm and Senate Charters, a deputy club is one comprised of a minimum of 15 deputies, and a senatorial club must involve at least 7 senators. Members of the upper and lower house who cooperate with one another can form a common affiliation, referred to as a parliamentary club.
During a debate, members of the parliament can each take the floor as themselves or on behalf of the club to which they belong, and the duration of the speech is deducted from that assigned to the entire affiliation in the latter case. A member must not simultaneously belong to more than one club.
If a group of senators or deputies wishes to congregate in one unit without meeting the requirement of an established number of members, a circle can be instituted.
The 9th term of the Sejm and the 10th term of the Senate both cover four parliamentary clubs, which coincide with the electoral committees standing in the 2019 parliamentary election.
- Law and Justice, composed of 235 deputies and 48 senators (President: Ryszard Terlecki)
- Civic Coalition, composed of 134 deputies and 43 senators (President: Borys Budka)
- The Left, composed of 49 deputies and 2 senators (President: Krzysztof Gawkowski)
- Polish People's Party, composed of 30 deputies and 3 senators (President: Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz).
