The Prime Minister of Kelssek (French: Premier ministre du Kelssek) is Kelssek's head of government and chairs the Cabinet of Kelssek. The prime minister is, typically, the leader of the largest party in the House of Commons, and holds the position until death, resignation, or dismissal by the President of Kelssek. In practice, the prime minister is the most powerful position in Kelssek's government as the president only overrules the elected government in extreme or crisis situations. The prime minister appoints (through the president) the other Cabinet ministers, justices of the High Court of Kelssek and federal courts, chief executives of state corporations, and other agencies as required by law. The current prime minister is Anne Marsha Cressey, leader of the United Communist Party, who was appointed following the 2014 federal election.

The position of Prime Minister is, by design, only vaguely outlined in Kelssek's constitution and largely operates according to a set of traditions and precedents known as "responsible government". The Constitution Act states only that the Prime Minister is appointed by the President of Kelssek, and holds that position as long as they maintain the confidence of the House of Commons (ability to win a majority vote on budget bills, or any vote which has been politically defined as a vote of confidence). However, the conventions of responsible government dictate that the Prime Minister and all members of Cabinet should be members of the House of Commons, so as to face daily scrutiny through Question Period. A non-MP who becomes Prime Minister is expected to seek election to the House at the earliest opportunity.


In formal settings, the prime minister is addressed as "Prime Minister". They gain the style The Right Honourable (Le très honorable) and may retain this title for life. The prime minister also receives an inflation-adjusted salary of 𝜏52,816 in addition to the 𝜏52,816 salary of a Member of Parliament (as of 181 CE).
