Robert James Paisley (born August 22nd, 1978) is an Astorian politician who has been Prime Minister of the Republic of Astoria since January 2nd, 2014, elected as Prime Minister in 2014, and re-elected in 2018 for a second term. He is the leader of the Labour Party (Astoria), the oldest and largest opposition party in Astoria. Paisley was Labour's candidate for president in the December 2018 general election, which he won, despite accusations of irregularities from the opposition Conservative Party.
Paisley and his twin brother Barry were born on August 22nd, 1978 at 2:32am in Footscray, ACT. Growing up in Meston, a relatively middle-class neighbourhood, his parents divorced in 1997, leaving both siblings with their mother, until 1999, when Paisley moved out of the area on general principles.
Following completion of high school, Paisley attended the National University of Astoria in 1998, eventually receiving a BA in Political Sciences, and a BEc in Economics, concluding studies in 2002, where he joined Labour's youth wing (the Young Liberals). He soon moved on to the main Labour wing in 2008, at the age of 30.
