The Polish Liquidation Committee (Polish: Polska Komisja Likwidacyjna Galicji i Śląska Cieszyńskiego) was a temporary Polish government body in Galicia formed towards the end of World War I. Created on October 28, 1918, with its seat in Kraków, the Committee was headed by Wincenty Witos and Ignacy Daszyński. The primary purpose of the Committee was to maintain order in the territories of the former Austrian part of partitioned Poland while the newly emerging independent Poland was being re-established.
