Alliance leadership is a complex interlocking of systems, committees and power-sharing which some see as a limit on the Prime Minister’s influence. For example, there is also a presidency which moves annually between member systems.
The Prime Minister is elected by the Council Members of the Alliance Assembly. It is the Prime Minister's job to corral them into some sort of consensus which is generally a slow process. Due to much cultural variation the Alliance Assembly rarely gets anything done. This is why the real power rests with the Civil Servants, and the Council of Admirals.
The Prime Minister is elected for six years, but disputes within the Assembly means that the PM often doesn’t make it that long. They can suffer votes against them, often resulting in resignation, or occasionally votes of no confidence. They can serve multiple terms, but none have managed to do so yet.
