He was a member of Sejm 2001-2005.

Due to his proclaimed "battle against corruption", he became one of the more popular and polarizing politicians in Poland. His uncompromising approach and publicized prosecutions earned him the title of Man of the year 2006, awarded by Wprost magazine. Yet, some of his policies were repeatedly characterized as partisan and overzealous by local and international press, including The Economist.

In 2007, allegedly linked in Andrzej Lepper bribery case former Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration Janusz Kaczmarek groundlessly accused him. In a media sparring with vice-PM Andrzej Lepper, Ziobro revealed that he secretly recorded a conversation with the Minister of Agriculture.
