The following were the Government Delegates for Poland (Delegat Rządu na Kraj) during World War II:

The above Delegates were officially administering the General Government from an office in Warsaw, but eventually they ended administering the entire occupied Poland, as posts for Delegates for territories annexed to Germany and territories annexed to the Soviet Union were not able to develop properly.

  • Adolf Bniński was the Delegate for the territories annexed by Germany; he held this position from December 1940 till his arrest in July 1941[1]
  • Leon Mikołajczyk was Bniński's successor; after his arrest in February 1942 the Delegate Office in Poznań lost its status as an independent office and became administered by the Warsaw office [1]
  • Władysław Zych was the acting Delegate for the Soviet occupied territories (he was never officially confirmed in this position by the Polish government in exile)[2]
