DeputyMinister of State for Cabinet Affairs

The Prime Minister is the highest ranking minister of the executive branch of the Government of the Roscami Federation and is the third highest office in the executive after the Vice President and the President. The Prime Minister is accountable to the President, the Cabinet and to Congress.

The position was considered de facto head of government under Doros Patusky's tenure and a weak advisor under the tenure of the incumbent Thomas Jacobs. The position is formally the head of the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs and first minister of the Cabinet.

History

The position was created at the beginning of the second term of Thomas Jacobs but was given to himself so he could have more power, in late August 2021 Doros Patusky, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs was elevated from deputy to Katherine Keadivich to above Keadivich in power and importance. The role was created as a coordinator of the cabinet.

Doros Patusky was also at the same time, Governor of Mervustan, who revived the Mervustan Authority and established the Mervustan Militia which became the guard and local military unit of the Province. Patusky lost his position on 21 October 2021 when he temporarily resigned. Katherine Keadivich succeeded him, and when he returned on 29 October 2021, Keadivich lost her long time position of Foreign Secretary. Keadivich was later removed by Thomas Jacobs, who became the acting First Secretary of State on 18 November 2021. He resigned on 28 November 2021.

On 28 November 2021, Culann Burke was directly elected the fifth First Secretary of State, and became entitled to sit as an ex officio Representative in the Chamber of Representatives, though such status was never exercised nor formally implemented.

In December 2023, the Federal Ministries Act reformed the office of First Secretary of State as Prime Minister. This however did not make the position head of government. That role would remain with the Presidency.

Adam Nagajek was appointed Prime Minister by President Jacobs in January 2024.
