politics and government of
Panama

The Vice President of Panama is the second-highest political position in the Government of Panama. Since 2009, the position of Vice President has been held by only one person.[1]

Before 1945 there were positions of presidential designates elected by the National Assembly for a two-year term.[2] The positions of presidential designates were replaced in 1945 by two vice presidents.

According to the current current constitution, Vice President is elected in the same ticket as the President of Panama.

Presidential designates 1904-1945[edit]

Before the 1946 Constitution was adopted, there were positions of three presidential designates: first designate Primer Designado a la Presidencia), second designate (Segundo Designado a la Presidencia) and third designate (Tercer Designado a la Presidencia).[3][4]
