SECTION III.—THE EXECUTIVE

A.—Executive Council/Aireacht

Article 52

From The Irish Constitution Explained by Darrell Figgis 1922

Ministers who are not members of the Parliament/ Oireachtas shall be nominated by a Committee of members of the Chamber/Dail Eireann chosen by a method to be determined by the Chamber/Dail so as to be impartially representative of the Chamber/Dail. Such Ministers shall be chosen with due regard to their suitability for office and should as far as possible be generally representative of the Irish Free State/ Saorstat Eireann as a whole rather than of groups or of parties. Should a nomination not be acceptable to the Chamber/Dail, the Committee shall continue to propose names until one is found acceptable.
