Berowalt Staves (Berowalt Gustav Staves; born 18 July 1886) was a Caltharusian Labour politician serving as the 7th and 9th Prime Minister of Great Morstaybishlia between two separate periods; upon the resignation of Kirus Guivarch he became Prime Minister on 6 June 1939. With insurgency in the Dominion of Axdel worsening in the late 1930s and early 1940s and becoming a divisive political issue, he lost several rebellious backbench MPs to the opposition, forcing his hand in a General Election which saw him lead a minority Labour government for 15 months. Upon the February 1942 General Election he lost to Alec Lanx who himself had a hung parliament and led a Liberal minority government for 226 days; the shortest ministry ever in Morstaybishlia. In the September 1942 General Election he led a second minority Labour government which lasted 280 days. The General Election of 1943 took place, but he inevitably lost to Alec Lanx for the last time.
