The Prime Minister of the Province of Greater Roscam was the head of government and the de facto head of the executive branch of the Greater Roscam Government from 25 November 2021 to 2 August 2022, when an executive governorship was introduced by the Legislative Assembly.
The Prime Minister was appointed by the Governor on recommendation of the Legislative Assembly of Greater Roscam.
Suspension of powers
After the passing of the Lieutenant Governors Act, Jacobs, in his capacity as Governor of Greater Roscam, decided to suspend the powers of the Prime Minister before a proposed referendum on 1 May 2022. The planned referendum failed, and the province was kept parliamentary.
On 2 August 2022, a proposal by Jacobs passed the Legislative Assembly, and abolished the premiership and parliamentary system.
The Prime Minister was considered de facto leader of the Province of Greater Roscam, and as such was, along with the Executive Council, responsible for most administration and executive duties in the province, with the exception of appointments, which are vested with the Governor of Greater Roscam. The Prime Minister was selected by the legislative assembly, and is required to keep their confidence to stay in power.
The Prime Minister's duties were in the broadest sense:
- Advised the Governor in matters of appointments and dismissals.
- Keeping the confidence of the Legislative Assembly.
- The running of the executive branch in the name of the Governor.
- Managing of the City-Region of Roscam due to its status as de facto capital of Roscamistan at large.
The Prime Minister was assisted in his work by the Deputy Prime Minister. The deputy is normally also given a cabinet position to run as well as being deputy head of government of Greater Roscam.
