Premiers of the Turks and Caicos Islands

A new constitution, after being laid in the Turks and Caicos parliament and receiving Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's signature, entered into force 9 August, 2006. The new constitution of the Turks and Caicos Islands changed the title of Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister to Premier and Deputy Premier. Although Michael Misick did not step down, or leave office at the time, simply for clarity this article shows his title of Chief Minister ending 9 August, as well as his new title of Premier beginning on the same date to define the time frame of each title.

In August 2009, the United Kingdom suspended the Turks and Caicos' self-government after allegations of ministerial corruption. The prerogative of the ministerial government and the House of Assembly are vested in the islands' incumbent governor, Gordon Wetherell, for a period of up to two years.[3]
