The Premier of Tárrases is the head of government for the Duchy of Tárrases, the chief executive minister of the cabinet serving under the Duke or Duchess, who is the head of state. The position was established by the 1920 Basic Law that serves as the autonomous city-state's constitution. Although elections have been declared "free and fair" by numerous international agencies, every Premier since 1920 has been a member of the Tarrasean Partido Soberano ("Partido Negro"). Thus the election process for the Premier is de facto carried out at the level of the party-internal election of the leadership of the party, however, since law allows non-party members to participate in this process, the selection is thus fairly democratic.
