 Prime Minister - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In some monarchies the prime minister exercises powers (known as the Royal Prerogative) which are constitutionally vested in the Crown and can be exercised without the approval of parliament.
The post of prime minister is one which may be encountered both in constitutional monarchies (such as Belgium, Denmark, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and in republics in which the head of state is an elected (such as France) or unelected official (such as Germany) with varying degrees of real power.
In many cases, though commonly used, "prime minister" is not the official title of the office-holder; the British prime minister is (usually) "First Lord of the Treasury and Minister for the Civil Service", and the Spanish prime minister is the President of the Government (Presidente del Gobierno).

When I say that marine mammals play a lesser role in contemporary Greenlandic society than was previously the case, for many of the local communities this came about as a result of the completely misconceived campaigns against sealskin products in the 1970s and '80s.
Greenland's marine mammal hunts have always been carried out on a sustainable basis.
It was therefore gratifying when the Nordic Council of Ministers endorsed and sponsored the Greenland initiative to arrange a Seminar on Indigenous People's Production and Trade in January 1996, in conjunction with the UN Decade of Indigenous Peoples.
