List of Prime Ministers of Afalia

Jump to: navigation, search

The Prime Minister of Afalia is the head of Her Majesty's Government of the Kingdom of Afalia and chairs cabinet meetings. The role of Prime Minister was first created in 1952 upon Afalian independence from Arthurista. The office grew out of the position of First Minister, which was used during the colonial and dominion period of Afalia's history between 1903 and 1952. Although there is some debate amongst historians as to whether the former First Minister Oliver King, who was passed over for the premiership in 1952, should be considered the first Prime Minister official records consider Michael Rogers the first to hold the office. There is also some debate as to whether Richard Saunders, the father of the house who was appointed acting prime minister during the 1997 Afalian Constitutional Crisis, should be included in the list. Official records do not include him.

As of 2017 eleven people, including the current Prime Minister Roger Lucas, have held the office of Prime Minister. Only two Afalian political parties have been represented in the office, the Afalian Liberal Party and Afalian Conservative Party. The longest serving Prime Minister was Nicholas Christie who held the office for 16 years. The shortest serving Prime Minister was James Mack who served for just short of two years. The oldest person to assume the office was the current Prime Minister Roger Lucas at the age of 58. The youngest person to assume the office was Jessica Shaw who was appointed at the age of 40. There are four former living Prime Ministers, Nicholas Christie, Patrick Collins, Zach Douglas and Jessica Shaw.

The Conservatives have held the office of Prime Minister for approximately 35 years whilst the Liberals have held it for approximately 30 years.
