Legal opinion on the interpretation of Article 184 of the Standing Orders of the Sejm with regard to the principles of the Deputies rectification
Languages of publication
Article 184 para. 1 of the Standing Orders of the Sejm obligates the Marshal of the Sejm to give the floor regardless of the orders of the day for the sitting or in respect of the debate to claim rectification. Only the Deputies to the Sejm are entitled to make rectifications. Rectifications can only refer to “statements that has been misunderstood or imprecisely quoted,” and notice of intention to use the remedy of rectification under this procedure is a direct response to the statement of another Deputy or any other participant in the sitting of the Sejm. For assessing the admissibility of rectification request it does not matter whether the author of the rectified statements directly mentioned the specific individuals whose statements he/she quotes giving their names. Presented rectification is not subject to debate or vote. A rectification should take the form of indicative sentence. In a situation where the Deputy’s statement does not satisfy the requirements relating to rectification, the Marshal of the Sejm has the right, and even the obligation, to reproach the Deputy, and to discontinue his/her speech.
