Icon position prime minister.png
Since eRepublik countries most relate to semi-presidential system a Prime Minister is the head of the cabinet and often also the chief executive of a parliamentary democracy. The position of the Prime Minister is filled by the elected Country President. A person who can replace Prime Minister if he/she is not capable to perform his functions is Deputy Prime Minister, however as the position is not predefined political title in most cases is not announced in advance, as the Prime Minister has to be manually replaced by the President.

History

As in the beginning, Prime Minister was an unofficial title in eRepublik, some countries, such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, choose to call their President, "Prime Minister", in order to stick with real life national political systems. It became a political title after it being proposed by one of the citizens.

India and Slovakia

Some counties, notably India and Slovakia, had Prime Ministers being the head of a Cabinet, however it was not the Chief Executive (e.g. President) of the country. Effectively the Prime Minister in this situation took on a Deputy role of the Nation.

Netherlands

Apart from having a President, Prime Minister was a separate job in the (United) Netherlands where the title Prime Minister was used for the head of the Cabinet, which was defacto also head of state. Cabinets were formed after congress elections and the leader of the biggest party forms a coalition with other parties to form a Cabinet. This coalition decided who would be Prime Minister. This position was considered more than or equally important as Country President. The president was more seen as a military and symbolic position. After a year of debating and experimenting in October 2010 this position was disbanded when the last Prime Minister Daniel Parker changed the constitution in favor of a semi-CP-government (CP is head of government, but his powers are limited by the congress).

Croatia and Italy

In Croatia and Italy, the Prime minister was the Vice president of the country, not the country leader.

Pakistan

In Pakistan, the Prime minister was the head of the Congress.

Exceptions

United Kingdom and Australia still refer to their President as the Prime Minister.
