Small Constitution of 1992

The Small Constitution of 1992 was a constitution regulating relations between the legislative and executive branches of Poland, and the local self-government. It was voted by the Poland's first freely-elected Sejm (parliament) since 1928.

It annulled some of the most outdated parts of the Communist 1952 Constitution of the People's Republic of Poland, particularly replacing statements about Poland being a communist and socialist state with those for a liberal democracy and market economy.

It was the second major adjustment of the 1952 constitution, after the April Novelization of 1989.

The reformed 1952 constitution was fully repealed and completely replaced in 1997 by the current Constitution of Poland.
