Selection and qualifications

The Premier of Quebec is nominally appointed by the Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec, vice-regal representative of the Queen in Right of Quebec, as president of the Executive Council. He or she is most usually the head of the party winning the most seats in the National Assembly of Quebec, and is normally a sitting member of the National Assembly. An exception to this rule occurs when the winning party's leader fails to win the riding in which he is running. In that case, he would have to be elected in a by-election. This has happened, for example, to Robert Bourassa in 1985. The role of the Premier of Quebec is to announce the legislative priorities on the opening speech of the National Assembly. He represents the leading party and must be trusted by the Assembly.

History

The Premiers of Quebec are elected since the application of the ministry responsibility principle. This principle exists from the convention, since the 'Loi Constitutionelle de 1867' (Constitutionnal Law of 1867) doesn't mention it.
