Not to be confused with the Upper Executive.

The Siroccan Executive (Siroccan: Sirokie Vyketin, Edallic: Seruco Tre'Kur), officially the Lower Executive, is the sole chamber of the legislature of Sirocco. It consists of fourteen seats, each of which represents Sirocco's provinces and dependencies.

The present Executive is Sirocco's seventh since foundation, however in its lifetime it has taken on different forms and even names. Originally known as the "Board of Ministers", the present-style Executive came into being into being in February 2012. The Executive is dominated by the Siroccan Federal Party with influence from the Siroccan Libertarian Party. Both are right-wing parties.

It is one of two Executives, the other being the Upper Executive, which encompasses the Premier and Vice-Premier. Despite the name, the Lower Executive is the only legislative council in Sirocco, the Upper Executive simply being a name for the two chief seats on the Lower Executive.

History

The Executive was originally formed as the Board of Ministers on 5 November 2010, which as the name suggests was merely a grouping of the then-government's ministers with a total of eleven seats. The first Board of Ministers was abruptly dissolved on 27 February 2011 when then-Foreign Affairs Minister Taylor Petrelli resigned both her ministerial portfolio and her citizenship. The second Board was then formed with ten seats (due to Premier Daniel Anderson assuming her portfolio) and ran until then-Minister of Internal Affairs Annabelle Morgan resigned on 7 November 2011. A third Board was then formed, which ran until 18 February 2012 when it was dissolved for a major ministerial reshuffle the following day. The current style Executive was formed on 10 April 2012 when it was reformed to comprise of members of Sirocco's provinces instead of its ministries.

The Siroccan Libertarian Party became the first party to dislodge Federal's dominance of the Executive when it was formed on 9 June 2012 and de facto won the Zageta seat. The following day both the Chai and Konson seats were filled with Libertarian members.

The Executive expanded to fourteen seats on 26 August 2012 with the dissolution of the Dependencies seat and the creation of the Hobson, Northern Dependencies and Southern Dependencies seats. The reason given for the rise in seat count from 12 to 14 (as opposed to 12 to 13) was to avoid the superstition around the number 13.

Provinces and Dependencies

Due to the low populations in each province and the dependencies, most if not all Representatives de facto hold their seat.

List of Executives

Executives are traditionally dissolved and reformed with a higher designation when the number of seats changes and/or a member resigns. The Sixth executive was an exception to this tradition — Catherine Victoria's resignation on 3 August 2012 did not trigger a dissolution.
