Grzegorz Juliusz Schetyna (Polish pronunciation: [ˈɡʐɛɡɔʂ sxɛˈtɨna], born February 18, 1963 in Opole) is a Polish politician. He was elected to the Sejm as a candidate of the Civic Platform on September 25, 2005 after receiving 14,978 votes in 1 Legnica district. Following the 2007 parliamentary election, he served as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration under Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

He was also a member of Sejm 1997–2001, Sejm 2001–2005, Sejm 2005–2007, Sejm 2007–2011.

After stepping down, he moved to the post of head of the Civic Platform Sejm caucus. Following Bronisław Komorowski's victory in the 2010 presidential election, he was recommended as the Civic Platform's candidate to succeed the President-elect as the Marshal of the Sejm.[1]

On July 8 he was elected Marshal of the Sejm and thus assumed the post of the Acting President of Poland. Schetyna served as the interim head of state until Komorowski's inauguration on August 6, 2010.[2]

He ceased being Sejm Marshal on November 8, 2011.
