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 third cabinet led by Seneschal Lüc da Schir came to power after elections to the 51st Cosa. The cabinet supersedes its previous iteration and is formed by the same parties, and largely by the same ministers.

Munditenens Tresplet retired from the Cabinet and the Senate to serve as Tuischac'h, and was replaced as Finance Minister by Carlüs Xheraltescu; Ian Plätschisch took up a portfolio as Interior Minister after serving only as Distain and focusing on legislative efforts during the previous term; and lastly, the Prime Minister picked Senator Magniloqueu da Lhiun in an effort to boost the agenda of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

The government's initial Cosa majority is 62 (131-69), increased to 69 (131-62) after the HAT's lone MC lost his seat which remained vacant. Five out of eight senators are aligned with the Government, four from the MRPT and one from the Free Democrats.

The only change in composition happened after the Fifth Cosa, when Foreign Minister da Lhiun resigned citing internal disagreements and difficulties. Minister without Portfolio Txoteu Davinescu was selected to replace him. After the end of the 51st Cosa, Glüc da Dhi resigned his office as Minister of STUFF to accept an appointment as Secretary of State.

The Cabinet was dissolved on July 29th to make way for the Plätschisch Cabinet.
