Government

From TalossaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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.

Current Cabinet

The Plätschisch Cabinet took office between July 29 and July 30 2018/XXXIX. It is the first cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Ian Plätschisch, a former Distain and Interior Minister. Marking the first time since 2013 that a party is able to lead more than two governments in a row, the Plätschisch Cabinet took over from the Third Da Schir Cabinet, whose leader Lüc da Schir announced he would not accept any post and enter a semi-retirement from national politics.

Unlike its predecessor, this Cabinet is a more marked departure from its previous iteration: for instance, the STUFF post, traditionally held by Moderate Radical ministers ever since the Da Dhi Cabinet, went to former Secretary of State Martì-Paìr Furxhéir, who last held the post fourteen years ago. Two other new Ministers will join Cabinet: Iac Marscheir, who briefly served as Finance Minister in the Second Da Schir Cabinet before pulling out for personal reasons, and Cresti Nouacastra-Läxhirescu, who debuts as Justice Minister. He will replace Viteu Marcianüs, who will abandon the post to serve solely as Distain, in a return to a more traditional arrangement where the Deputy Prime Minister does not manage another concurrent portfolio and focuses on legislative projects.

The government is projected to have a comfortable nominal Cosa majority of 64 (132-68). This is the highest in governments formed after Reunision.
