1965 Polish legislative election All 460 seats in the Sejm
Parliamentary elections were held in Poland on 30 May 1965. They were the fourth elections to the  Sejm, the parliament of the People's Republic of Poland, and fifth in Communist Poland. They took place on 30 May. The lists admitted were controlled by the Front of National Unity (FJN), in turn controlled by the Polish United Workers' Party (PZPR).
The distribution of seats was decided before the elections by the FJN, and electors had no possibility to change it. The results of the 1965 election would be duplicated, exactly, by the 1969 and 1972 elections.
Results [ edit ]
As the other parties and "independents" were in fact subordinate to PZPR, its control of the Sejm was, in fact, total.
