How is the Premier chosen????[edit]

A brief description of how the premier is appointed/removed would be helpful. Appointed by the legislative assembly after election I think. But what if there is no clear majority? I know that independents were responsible for electing Steve Bracks in 1999. Can they change their mind mid-term? Vote of no confidence?

Premiers are appointed by the Governor (under convention, according to the advice of an ougoing Premier who has lost the election, and resigns his commission as a result. This is an aspect of the Westminster System).--Grahamec 10:11, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

More to add, later, though writing biographies for the earlier ones will be pretty tough . . . --Robert Merkel

Middle names[edit]

Is it necessary to have the middle names of all of the Premies in this article? Some of the first names listed are not even in consistent of those for what they were known as as Premier. Wikistar (Place order here) 09:45, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Premiers of VictoriaPremier of Victoria — In Category:Lists of heads of government of Australian states and territories, all of the Deputy Premier/Chief Minister articles are singular; so are the Chief Minister articles and Premier of Western Australia.

  • Support. A no-brainer, really. The articles are not just lists of the respective premiers, they're descriptions of the offices and histories of the offices. The same protocol should apply to whichever of the Governor articles are not "Governor of <name of state>". -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 20:02, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
    • Comment. I didn't notice the Governor articles were out of alignment too. Thanks for mentioning it. Moved one and listed the other at RM. Miracle Pen (talk) 21:18, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Move since it is about the office rather than the collection. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 05:15, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support agree with above statements. Jenks24 (talk) 10:23, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Support The articles are about the role, they merely happen to contain a list of the holders of it. Orderinchaos 16:40, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
