The Prime Minister of Craitland is the head of the executive government in Craitland.

Role

The Prime Minister's primary position is to act as the head of the Craitish government. They are, by convention, the leader of the most prominent party in the Craitish parliament, whether this be as part of a complete majority or in a hung parliament, and therefore hold both executive and legislative powers. Under the position, the Prime Minister's authority extends to enacting lawmaking agenda, the appointing and dismissing of parliamentarians from cabinet and ministry positions, and overseeing the organisation of all governmental departments. The Prime Minister is also the official voice of the Craitish executive, and deals directly with the monarch in regards to enacting law and requesting ceremonial permissions.

Election

The Prime Minister is elected through Craitland's general election votes, using the mixed-member proportional representation system. The party which gains the most seats in the election leads the government, either as a majority, minority or coalition, with the party's leader, who would have been named as the first candidate on the electoral list by default, becoming Prime Minister. Following the result of the election, the new Prime Minister must gain the monarch's permission to establish a government in what is essentially a symbolic act of protocol.

In accordance with regulation, an individual is not eligible to hold the position of Prime Minister for consecutive terms; that is, more than one Gregorian year (four AC years; twelve AN years). However, non-consecutive terms are permitted with no limit of number, although no former-Prime Minister has yet been re-elected to the position.
