The Vice President, officially the Vice President of the Republic of Roscamistan, is the deputy head of state and government of the Republic of Roscamistan. The position was created along with the Presidency of Roscamistan on 18 February 2021, when the state was founded. It is one of the Great Offices of State of Roscamistan.

Election

The Vice President is directly elected on a joint-ticket along with the President in a presidential election. The Vice President can be of the same or different party than the President, or not have a party at all as most Vice Presidents didn’t have a political party affiliation.

Duties

The Vice President is the deputy to the President. Though the office on its own is not one of major constitutional power, normally a Vice President is given a department to run as well as the Vice Presidency.

In the legislative branch of government, the Vice President serves ex officio as the President of the Senate, the presiding officer. The Vice President is not responsible to the Senate, though the Deputy President of the Senate, elected by fellow senators, is, and acts for the President of the Senate on most occasions.

The Vice President is first in the presidential line of succession, replacing the President in case of death, resignation, impeachment or permanent incapacitation.

Succession to the presidency

If the President is mentally unstable, dead, impeached, has resigned or declared incapacitated by the Council of State, then the Vice President succeeds to the Presidency and fills the rest of the term of the President.

If the President is on foreign trips, on holidays, outside of Roscamistan or is in international meetings, then the Vice President becomes acting President until the President can exercise the powers of the Presidency again.

List of vice presidents

There have been a total eight Vice Presidents with four individuals holding the office and two of them having served on non-consecutive tenure. The first Vice President was Culann Burke, with the current office-holder being Matthew Williams since 11 May 2022.
