Honourable Justices of the Court,

I am placing a request for review on the topic of the nomination of the Deputy Prime Minister.

The ONLY clause the constitution references the topic in is below:

"4. The Prime Minister can nominate a Deputy Prime Minister to help oversee the ministries. The House of Representatives shall be presented with that nominee and must hold a vote lasting three days, until all House Representatives have voted, or until a majority of House members have approved or rejected the nominee. If the nominee is rejected, the Prime Minister may present a new nominee and restart the process."

This does not specify, in the case of the most recent appointment, if a DPM has to be re-nominated, either in the case of a second re-election, or, more prominently, if the current DPM was nominated in the middle of a term following a resignation.

This is what I would like clarified before the issue next comes up.

In both cases, the DPM continues to hold office unless they are relieved.
