Another limited sejm. Ordinary Sejm in Grodno. 1718 r.

The Sejm was convened in June, while the pre-sejm sejmiks were held in August and September 1718. The Sejm began its proceedings on the day for which it was convened, i.e. on 3 October 1718. Krzysztof Zawisza, the Starost of Minsk, was elected Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies. Although not many important resolutions were passed, the Sejm was marked by the peaceful course and cooperation of the king with the deputies. An important mission of Stanisław Chomentowski was sent to the Tsar. The Sejm was limited on 14 November 1718, granting the king the right to convene it in the same composition at any time.
