Impeachment & Succession[edit | edit source]

The prime minister is impeachable by a two-thirds majority of the National Assembly. Although motions of impeachment have been drafted against the majority of officeholders, no prime minister has ever been impeached.

Historically, three prime ministers have vacated office intra-term, although each via different method: Keith Hill (in office 1789–1790), who died from tuberculosis ten months into his term; Phillip Matthews (in office 1906–1910), who resigned a little over a year into his second term due to fractures in his party; and Charles Reynolds (in office 2010–2012), who was assassinated two years into his term.

In case of death, incapacitation, impeachment, or resignation, the prime minister is succeeded by the deputy prime minister (although this has never occurred). Historically, before the position was created, the National Assembly was tasked with nominating a successor.
