The Prime Minister of Jamaica is Jamaica's head of government, currently Bruce Golding. Bruce Golding was elected as the new leader of the governing Jamaica Labour Party and succeeded Portia Simpson-Miller to become Jamaica's eighth Prime Minister on 11 September 2007. [1]

As is the case with most democratic nations that follow the Westminster system of the parliamentary system, the Prime Minister is usually the leader of the majority party in the lower house of parliament, the House of Representatives.

The Prime Minister is formally appointed into office by the Governor General of Jamaica, who represents Elizabeth II, the Queen of Jamaica (Jamaica's Head of State).
