The Prime Minister’s official residence is the Prime Minister House in Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Road, Helsmariehamn, where it is also the Prime Minister's office.

The post of Prime Minister is currently held by Sir Paul Dominic Gordon, since the 2022 general election. He was re-elected in 2023.

History

The Prime Minister of Queensland is an ancient position in Queensland, it was created in 2015 as specified in the constitution at that time, the Governor-General of Queensland also held the position of Prime Minister until in 2016 the constitution was amended to abolish the position Governor-General of Queensland and transferred the authority of Head of State from Elizabeth II directly to a Queenslandian head of state, making the position of Prime Minister also tied to the position of Head of State of Queensland.

On 14 November 2017, Queen Victoria II ordered the tying of the position of Prime Minister and the head of state of Queensland to be abolished, thus de facto ending the absolute monarchy and on 1 December, that same year Queen Victoria II appointed Prince Albert, Duke of Sembilan, as Prime Minister, and 10 days later he had to resign following Queen Victoria II's abdication.

On 8 December that same year, Queen Victoria II issued a Royal Decree to elect the Prime Minister, this was the first time Queensland had ever held an election and resulted in Patsy Liliana Victoria winning the general election and becoming Prime Minister, she was the first civilian prime minister, but due to problems within parliament, she dissolved parliament and held another election in 2018.
