 Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
The Prime Minister's main responsibilities include setting the direction of the government, appointing members of the Cabinet, coordinating the activities of the Cabinet and government departments, participating in ceremonial occasions, and being the 'face' of the government in the UK and abroad.
The Prime Minister and the government must resign upon the passage of a vote of no confidence[?] or the loss of a vote of confidence[?], unless the defeated Prime Minister seeks a dissolution of parliament[?] which in theory the monarch may refuse but in practice never does.
However, in practice, a strong Prime Minister can so dominate government that they become a 'semi-president', that is they fulfil the leadership role in a country in the same way as a president, but not carry out the ceremonial duties of a Head of State.

This number includes an alarming list of political assassinations, including five Cabinet ministers, Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, and Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa.
Whether the United States is eyeing Sri Lankan territory if it in fact is doing so to take advantage of Sri Lanka's strategically valuable locale or to back the government against the LTTE remains unclear.
The effects of the global campaign against terror are therefore providing the Sri Lankan government some hope that the new round of peace talks would succeed.

 Foreign minister - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ministry for foreign affairs is often regarded as the most senior ministerial position below that of the head of government (prime minister or president); it is often granted to the deputy prime minister in coalition governments.
Similarly, the political powers invested in the foreign minister are often more limited in presidential governments with a strong executive.
In the United Kingdom, the foreign minister is called the ' Foreign Secretary '; after the merger of the previously separate Foreign Office and Commonwealth Office in 1968, the foreign minister is officially referred to as the ' Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs '.

 Oliver Kamm: Worst of the worst
Also, Denis Healey ceased being Minister of Defence in 1970, and the Minister in the Labour Government was Fred Mulley (the man who was famously pictured fast asleep at one military display while sitting next to the Queen).
An interesting list, and I can understand your reasoning for most of them, while disagreeing strongly with anyone who could doubt, for example, that Roy Jenkins was the worst Home Secretary.
It's (in the strict technical sense) begging the question to cite the power-sharing executive as a Good Thing, for it is my contention that it had no hope of success, owing to its design: it masked a fundamental change in the British Government's attitude to the constitutional status of Northern Ireland.

 Vreme: Scandal, "special war" by the three deputy Prime Ministers in the Serbian Government, January 16 1999
The deputy Prime Ministers refused to reveal how the Government had "obtained" the "secret CIA document", probably to protect its secret methods and "intelligence sources" in the very top of CIA and Clinton administration.
Soon afterwards, the journalists found the original document, that is "the original of the forgery": it is the recommendation of the Working Group of USIP to the American Government regarding the funds which should be invested into the advancement of democracy in Yugoslavia.
Three deputy Prime Ministers in the Serbian Government, all three with doctoral degrees, and one even a professor at the Police Academy, fell for a cheap and clumsy forgery - unless they made it themselves.

 Official website of the Prime Minister of New Zealand
The terms Premier and Prime Minister were both used from 1869 to the turn of the century but Premier was the more common and official title of the Head of Government.
However neither held the post of Colonial Secretary which normally denoted the Head of Government back then, and both of them served prior to the introduction of "responsible self government" thus most historians regard Sewell as the first Premier (or Head of Government).
Richard John Seddon in 1899 started to use the title Prime Minister almost exclusively and his successor in 1906 William Hall-Jones was the first person to be officially appointed to such a position.
