|Inaugural holder||Isabela Mello|
The Prime Minister of the Nemkhav Federation is the leader of the Council of Ministers of the Nemkhav Federation. The Prime Minster recommends potential ministers to the President, acts as a political advisor to the President, represents the President when the President is not present and takes over for the President if they are unable to carry out their duties. The position is appointed by the President.
The federal office of Prime Minister traces its history back to the original Premier of the Imperial Republic and the first Nemkhav Federation.
The first Prime Minister of the Second Federation, Isabela Mello, was appointed to the position by President Marka Mejakhansk. When the second President, Samuel Azehtyla, came into office he replaced the position with the position of Vice President and appointed Sebastian Linden, however after Linden's departure from Nemkhavia the role was made vacant until Samuel Azehtyla made Marka Mejakhansk Vice-President, however after Azehtyla's departure from Nemkhavia, and Mejakhansk's subsequent promotion to the Presidency, Alex Ulbricht was appointed to the role as Prime Minister after the Nemkhav constitution brought about a return to the role’s original title.
Upon the foundation of the Third Federation, the office was maintained in the new constitution. It remains vacant currently.
Eligibility & Appointment
The office of Prime Minister is open to any citizen of the Federation, but generally the President will appoint a member of the either house of the Federal Assembly to the role.
The appointment, like all ministries, can be reversed by the House of Territories but this power has never been used. Once appointed, the Prime Minister serves until the end of the President’s current term of office. The President may also dismiss the Prime Minister at any time of their choosing.
The Prime Minister is head of the Council of Ministers and oversees their day-to-day affairs, as well as acting as the President’s chief advisor. They may also hold other ministerial positions concurrently.
Constitutionally, the Prime Minister is second-in-charge of the Federation and assumes all presidential powers should the President be unable to carry out their duties. This power remains with the Prime Minster until the President resumes their duties or until a new President is elected.
