First successful limited [suspended and postponed, but all adopted resolutions came into force] sejm. The extraordinary sejm in Warsaw. 1712.

This sejm was convened on 30 December 1711. The pre-sejm sejmiks were held in February and March of 1712. The sejm began proceedings on 5 April 1712 and lasted till 19 April 1712. It was not confederated, although the Sandomierz Confederation, formed in 1704, impeded its disruption. Stanisław Denhoff, Great Lithuanian Scriptor, was elected the marshal of the Chamber of Deputies. Sejm was called to regulate fiscal and military matters, but during the proceedings the main subject of the debate became the evacuation of the tsarist troops, quartered in the Commonwealth. The threat posed by Ottoman Empire was also discussed. Because of the conflict between two Lithuanian hetmans (Ludwik Pociej and Stanisław Denhoff), as well as because of intrigues of king Stanisław Leszczyński supporters (General Council of Warsaw in 1710 acknowledged Augustus II’s claims to the throne), sejm was limited, that is postponed to 31 December 1712, pursuant to a special sejm regulation. Other issues that were not dealt with in the period 1698-1710 were also postponed.
