Origin and history
The office of Vice-President was established on January 29, 2017 by President Edward Jacobs, with the purpose of assisting the President in establishing the Second Federation. Albeit a temporary position at first, it became permanent after the Second Constitution was adopted.
The Vice-President was granted some of the late Prime Ministerial powers, such as presiding over the upper house of the Council of the Federation - the House of Territories. As a consequence, the office of Prime Minister was dissolved. The first appointed Vice-President was Manolis Afentoulis.
On April 5, 2020, following the establishment of the Republic of Ashukovo, the office of Vice-President underwent major reforms.
Powers and duties
The Vice-President is a mandatory member of the Council of Ministers whose executive authority is on par with the Ministers. The President may delegate some of his powers through a Presidential Decree to the Vice-President.
The Vice-President is ranked second in the succession line to the Presidency.
