The Prime Minister of Cycoldia is the head of government of the Grand Republic of Cycoldia. They are elected by the General Assembly following nomination of the leader of the majority party. This is commonly done through a motion submitted by the Speaker to nominate a predetermined candidate from the party. The responsibilities of the Prime Minister include the staffing of their cabinet, issuing Prime Ministerial Orders, and assuring the government's duties are being carried out. The office of the Prime Minister is the highest ranking office that is democratically gained without appointment to it within Cycoldia.

History

The Prime Minister has been a point of interest in the Grand Republic of Cycoldia, and has been an office involved in scandals since its founding, with the first Prime Minister not having been elected by the General Assembly, and instead having been appointed by Christina I & II. The first Prime Minister was removed from the office after being warned that if his company did continue to keep Ethan F. as an Executive he would be removed, he did not remove Ethan F. from his board and so was subsequently removed.

The second Prime Minister was Avery Prasatik. In her time she issued from her office two Prime Ministerial Orders. These documents are orders from the Prime Minister to execute specific orders from their position as head of the executive, in the case of Prasatik's first order, it formed the Royal Commission on Lacian History, formed to list through the history of the United Kingdom of Creek and Lake on behalf of Cycoldia. Her second order dictated a denouncement of Greg Abbott in his capacity as Governor of Texas.

The first ever challenge to a nomination of the prime minister was done by Arthur Lacey-Scott in the 2022 Monarchist Party premiership election, who later won the challenge as announced in a speech from Christina I & II. In this she highlighted that while the vote still was tied that in national polling data Lacey-Scott had popular support, and therefore she selected him. This has been the only ever successful challenge to a nomination in Cycoldia.

The only ever Prime Minister to be removed by a Motion of No Confidence was Kevon Burnett, who was removed by Motion #131. The motion passed with only three in favour, two against, and five members abstaining, with three of those five having not voted during the given time duration.[1]
