|Premier of Livonia|
|Formation||March 20, 2013 (traditional)|
|Appointed by||Presidium |
Politburo of the Communist Party
|Inaugural holder||Peter Grier|
The Premier of the USSSL is the head of government of the Union of Soviet Socialist States of Livonia.
In practice the Politburo presents a candidate that it has already approved to the Chairman of the Presidium. The Chairman then presents the candidate to the Presidium. The Presidium then votes on the candidate. If the candidate is approved then the Supreme Soviet votes on the appointee. This process gives the Communist Party pracital control over the entire appointment process since it initiates the appointment.
The Premier is empowered to issue decrees that are national law. These decrees are made in the name of the Council of Ministers but are in fact entirely under the purview of the Premier.
The Premier is also given the authority to represent the USSSL in foreign nations when the Chairman of the Presidium is not present.
