DUTIES AND FUNCTIONS

To be effective, accountable and in line with custom, the premier does hold a seat in the legislature, so the premier serves as the MLA for a riding , and is elected as the MLA by the constituents of that constituency. As with most government leaders in a parliamentary system , the premier usually wins his or her own election as MLA easily. However, on occasion, a premier has not been re-elected to their seat in a general election, forcing them to run in a by-election in a constituency that comes empty by the resignation of the sitting MLA or other incident. The most recent case of this was Don Getty , who lost his Edmonton-Whitemud seat in the 1989 election and then ran and was elected in a by-election in Drumheller-Stettler . In 2014 Jim Prentice was elected party leader without holding a seat in the legislative assembly, thus becoming premier, and won a Calgary-Foothills by-election in order to gain a seat in the assembly.

The Premier of Alberta's responsibilities include administering provincial laws , enacting legislation , and regulating industry. The premier is responsible for promoting Alberta's interests via the federal government and serves as the chief representative of Alberta to the rest of Canada.
