The Prime Minister of the Republic of the Magdalen Islands is the most senior minister of cabinet, and is responsible for presiding over its meetings.

December 2012 Crisis
On 19 December 2012, Raoul Bouchard was kicked out of office after a motion of non-confidence against the government. Paul Frank, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the leader of the Coalition for the Future, withdrew his support for the coalition, and the government therefore collapsed. President Guillaume Garot appointed former presidential candidate, Manuela St-André, to lead a caretaker government until a deal was made between the parties for a new coalition government. On 20 December 2012, after three hours of negotiations, a new coalition government was formed by the Conservative Party, the Green Party, and the Coalition for the Future. The deal will last until 10 January 2013, when the new Prime Minister, François Côté, will ask President Garot to call an election to try to bring about stability.
