Overview A provisional government, also called an interim government or transitional government, is an emergency governmental authority set up to manage a political transition generally in the cases of the collapse of the or suspension of a previous governing administration. The first provisional government for the Democratic Union of Free States was established during December, 2017.
All of the provisional governments of this Union were made up of appointed/unelected officials or elected officials of the previous governing authority. As of 2019, the Union has had 4 transitional/provisional governing bodies, with two failed attempts to set up a provisional government.
This body was created after the House of Chiefs dissolved themselves on April 1st, 2018 and tasked itself to create a new constitution.
Unlike previous provisional governments this body had little authority over the Union itself and only had the authority to draft a new constitution, however it had the power to create new laws which had to be approved by the House of Ministers.
This body was stripped of its legislative power on May 4th, 2018 by the House of Ministers.
By May 21st the House of Ministers seized the constitutional drafting authority from this body and gave it to the Executive branch, after which this government's sole authority was to debate on new constitutional provisions and drafts.
On May 25th the Union Chiefs Authority was forcefully dissolved by Supreme Minister Ocenaia and three days later the Constitution created by this now dissolved government was put into place by decree of the House of Ministers.
