Following the August 2020 executive elections, Patrick Renwick of the National Royalists was elected as Vorsitzender, against Connor Stumperth and Thomas Bainbridge of the Confederals and Andrew Irons of the Liberty Front. The Stellvertretership race resulted in Newton von Uberquie, also of the National Royalists, winning the race with 60% of the votes.
With the result being that the National Royalists now held a plurality in the Volkstag and both the Vorsitzender- and Stellvertreterships, Renwick announced his intent to form a single-party government, though together with the one independent MV.
On 7 August 2020, Renwick and the entire ministry were appointed by Emperor Nicholas. It was the first ministry to use the new system of Great Offices of State as opposed to regular ministries. It’s members remained the same as those of the proceeding Provisional ministry, though with some shuffling of jobs.
The ministry lost its majority in the Volkstag when Independent MV James Frisch resigned as Imperial Representative, and was replaced by the Emperor with Thomas Bainbridge of the opposition Confederals.
