The Prime Minister of Bastara is the head of government of the Kingdom of Bastara. The prime minister advises the Monarch on how to exercise much of their powers, chairs the cabinet and nominates its ministers.

They sit as a member of parliament based on the convention that they are required to maintain the confidence of the House of Commons. As a result of this, they are normally the leader of the political party with the largest number of seats in the House of Commons.

The office was created by the Constitution of Bastara.


The role of prime minister was established by the constitution, and became an official office on 9 June 2023.


Constitutionally the PM is appointed at the discretion of the monarch and serves at their pleasure. However, in practice the prime minister is appointed based on their ability to command confidence in the House of Commons and so, as a result, is normally the leader of the largest political party in the house.


As head of government the PM leads the cabinet (the executive branch), and normally commands a majority in the lower chamber of parliament so also wields significant legislative power.

In the House of Commons, the prime minister guides the legislative process with the goal of enacting the legislative agenda of their political party. In an executive capacity, the prime minister nominates (and may dismiss) all other Cabinet members and ministers, and co-ordinates the policies and activities of all government departments, and the staff of the Civil Service. The prime minister also acts as the public face and voice of His Majesty's Government, both at home and abroad and can act on a diplomatic level as a result.
