Parliamentary elections were held in Poland on 23 March 1980.[1] The results, like with the other elections in communist Poland, were controlled by the communist government. The results of the 1976 election would be duplicated, exactly, by the 1980 election, and were only marginally different from those of the preceding years. The election of 1985 once again produced only marginally different results.

As the other parties and "independents" were in fact subordinate to PZPR, its control of the Sejm was, in fact, total.[2][3]
