The Prime Minister of Ceardia (commonly referred to as the prime minister or PM) is the head of government of Ceardia and the head of the cabinet. If anyone is to become the prime minister they must first be a member of the House of Delegates, must win the nomination for the premiership and must be appointed by the president (the president is constitutionally obliged to appoint the prime minister when they are elected). The prime minister is also subject to questioning by both legislative houses and is ordered by law to debrief the president every 4 weeks. The prime minister is also the first in the order of succession. The prime minister can serve as long as they like as long as they can command a majority in the house.

The office has a long standing history. It was created in 230 BGW under the leadership of Charles Gilbert the office predates that of the president which was only created after the Ceremonial Powers Act. The prime minister is the only government executive position that has not changed its de jure name since its creation. However its powers have varied across the centuries. Under Gilbert the prime minister had huge powers and could rule by decree. This was removed when Benedict Rubio was forced to give up power after a number of abuses. There have been multiple coups in ceardias history and this has led to the office being increased with considerable power.

The current prime minister is Thomas McGovern who was appointed in December 2026. He is a member of the Social Democratic Party and took over for Douglas H. Smith after his death in December 2016.
