Premier is a title for the head of government in central governments, state governments and local governments of some countries. A second in command to a premier is designated as a deputy premier. A premier will normally be a head of government, but is not the head of state. In presidential systems, the two roles are often combined into one, whereas in parliamentary systems of government the two are usually kept separate.
A premier is a high-ranking official or individual who holds the prominent position in a national or regional government, such as a Prime Minister. The premier is often the head of government and is responsible for implementing and overseeing policies, decisions and managing the functioning of the government body. The specific powers and duties of a premier can vary significantly depending on the political system or framework of the country.
