The Grand-Duchess of the principality of Beremagne is the head of the Beremian's government. The Prime Minister (informally abbreviated to PM) are collectively accountable for their policies and actions to the Monarch, to Parliament, to their political party and ultimately to the electorate.

Authority

The Grand-Duchess is the head of the Beremian's government. In addition, the Prime Minister leads generally a major political party. The incumbent wields both significant legislative and executive powers. Under the Principality of Beremagn's system, there is a unity of powers rather than separation of them. In an executive capacity the Grand-Duchess appoints (and may dismiss) all other ministers, and co-ordinates the policies and activities of all government departments, and the staff of the Civil Service. The Grand-Duchess also acts as the public "face" and "voice" of His Highness' Government, both at home and abroad.

Appointment (Procedure)

Every 5 years, elections are scheduled to appoint a new citizen to the crucial role that is to be the Grand-Duke(Duchess). Elections are planned on the web, to follow the general principality's project concerning technology, and the use we make of it. At the issue of the vote (2 Tours at the maximum), the winner is announced by the authority responsible of the designation of the new holder. The Monarch is immediately advised by his cabinet of the results of the procedure.

Creation of a new government

After the elections, the Monarch's cabinet schedule a meeting between him and the new Grand-Duke(Duchess). During this private moment, the Sovereign ask to the Head of Government :

"As the Prince of Beremagne, after the elections of (date), i ask you to form a new government for the Principality of Beremagne"

In theory and in the major part of cases, the elected citizen agree to the Monarch's request and form a new government composed by Ministers, Advisors, assistants etc...

Suspension of the post

In case of a major crisis into the government, in which the contact is lost, the Monarch can suspend the Grand-Duke(Duchess) and take the responsability of his own actions. After the crisis moment, the Head of Government must be re-appointed a second time as described before. A new government can be created, it's not mandatory, and the former ministers and assistant can take their functions as before.
