The President appoints the other ministers in accordance with a proposal from the Prime Minister.<br /> <br />Before the Prime Minister is elected, the groups represented in Parliament negotiate on the political programmed and composition of the Government. On the basis of these negotiations, and having heard the views of the Speaker of Parliament, the President informs Parliament of the nominee for Prime Minister. The nominee is elected Prime Minister if supported by more than half the votes cast in an open vote in Parliament<br />
