On 3 May 1791, the Sejm adopted a constitution known since then as the Constitution of 3 May. Did the state governance system it introduced offer a chance of reversing Poland’s fate?

75%
No: the parliamentary system did not offer any chance of retaining Poland’s sovereignty given its aggressive neighbours ruled by absolutist monarchs.
25%
Probably not: Poland’s economic and military weakness did not vanish once the Constitution had been passed; however, its importance lies not in the reality of the then governance system but its symbolism as the act offered new generations the strength to fight with a view to regaining the country’s independence.
0%
Yes: after all, constitutional systems based on the division of powers principle were present in other countries (United States, Great Britain, Dutch Republic).
