The Government of Talossa is formed after each general election, at intervals of eight months or less. After the election, the political party or coalition of parties holding a majority of seats in the newly elected Cosa organizes a new government administration, recommending to the King a particular person for the office of Seneschal, or Prime Minister. The Seneschal appoints a cabinet of ministers to enact various functions specified in the Organic Law and in statutes (most particularly The Cabinet Refinishing Act). Typically, new Seneschals have left some of the offices vacant, or permitted the incumbents to retain their positions.
