The Sejm took place in Warsaw and was a confederated sejm to prevent liberum veto being used to stop it. The marshal of the sejm was Adam Poniński, a Polish noble in Russian service. Through some deputies tried to protest (notably, Tadeusz Rejtan and Samuel Korsak), the Sejm on 30 September 1773 accepted the partition treaty. It also introduced other reforms, some of which were seen later as progressive: Permanent Council, a proto-government, was created, as well as Commission of National Education (first ministry of education in the world). The fiscal policy was also reformed, with one tax being introduced and tariffs being reintroduced. Military was reformed, with hetmans being held more accountable to the Sejm. Szlachta was officially allowed to deal with trade and [[craft]s (previously it conferred a risk of losing the noble status); and some reforms limited the severity of serfdom.
