Deputy Premier of Manitoba Wikipedia
The Deputy Premier is a cabinet minister in the province of Manitoba, Canada. The position has existed for several years, but only appears to have become a full-fledged cabinet portfolio in 1988. Between 2009 and 2011, the position was held by both Eric Robinson and Rosann Wowchuk.
The minister fulfills the responsibilities of the Premier of Manitoba, at times when the Premier is absent. The Deputy Premier is not a constitutionally-defined role, and has no formal place in the line of succession to the Premier of Manitoba.
