The Deputy Prime Minister of Sabia and Verona (in Sabian vaokuragikurág sabiann veronarra; lit. "Vice Chief of Government") is the deputy to the Prime Minister of Sabia and Verona and the second-most senior minister in the Sabioveronese government, although this seniority does not necessarily translate into power. The office was created as a ministerial portfolio in 2015. The officeholder usually deputises for the Prime Minister at official functions, and was first described as a constitutionally-mandated office in the Constitution of 2017.

The current Deputy Prime Minister is Shounn Virny, a member of the Liberals. Virny deputises for PM Andrew Blackhorse, of the same party, who leads the 11th government, confirmed by the 4th Parliament.


The role of the Chief of Government has changed over the course of Sabioveronese history. Although Sabia and Verona has always been de jure a parliamentary democracy, for a long time the Prime Minister held a more active role in the Kingdom's politics than the Prime Ministers of other parliamentary monarchies. Until 2015, the PM did not have to be a member of the legislature nor the leader of their party, and elections were held separately for the PM and for the members of the Courts. The social attitude towards the office of the head of government has also always been more reminiscent of the presidential model in place in most macronations that have had an influence on Sabia and Verona, such as the neighbouring Venezuela and Argentina.

Presently, the political power of the Prime Minister has been considerably moderated with the adoption of new constitutions, namely the 2015 and 2017 constitutions, but the general public's perception of the head of government remains similar to that of a head of state in presidential democracies. The Constitution of 2017 defines the role of the Prime Minister in title V (The Government), which encompasses articles 46 to 54.
