Wincenty Skrzetuski o Radzie Nieustającej
WINCENTY SKRZETUSKI ON CONTINUOUS COUNCIL
Languages of publication
Wincenty Skrzetuski, an author of the book The Political Law of the Polish Nation presents himself as an advocate of the formation of Continuous Council. It needs to be indicated that a Polish piar left not only a description of the competences of Continuous Council, among which he enlists keeping an internal and external order and execution of laws, but also a valuable evalu- ation of one of the most important prerogatives of a new central state authority formed between 1775 and 1776 which was an interpretation of a biding law made by means of released resolutions. Skrzetuski happens to emphasise the importance of the formation of Continuous Council which was a kind of the first central government and its final shape was the expression of a compromise between the advocates supporting a monarch power and a republican-gentry camp.
