History and function

The ministry was originally founded in 1918 as the Ministry of Internal Affairs (Ministerstwo Spraw Wewnętrznych). During a reform of the Polish government in 1996 the administration branch was merged into the Ministry and it was renamed to its current name (on 24 December).

It is today is one of the most important governmental cabinet positions in Poland,[1] The ministry if currently responsible for the following:

  • The general interior security of the country, with respect to criminal acts or natural catastrophes
  • the granting of identity documents (Polish passports, identity cards) and driving licenses through the network of voivodeships
  • relations between the central government and local governments (except in the case of regional development, which is undertaken by the Ministry of Regional Development
  • logistics and organization of political elections, at the national and voivodeship levels (but the results of the elections are overseen by the Constitutional Tribunal and administrative courts)
  • regulation of immigration and preventing illegal immigration
  • integration and registration of legal immigrants

While the ministry of the Interior supervises police forces, it does not supervise criminal enquiries; criminal enquiries are conducted under the supervision of the judiciary.
