Abstract: Let $G$ be a polynomial semigroup containing an element with degree at least 2 with the semigroup operation being functional composition. We prove that $G$ is nearly abelian if and only if the smallest $G-$completely invariant closed subset of the Riemann sphere is not equal to the Riemann sphere. We also give a positive answer to Conjecture 7.1 in Hinkkanen and Martin's paper on the dynamics of semigroups of rational functions.
