|Length of term||Under the Canadian Constitution, the term
of government is five years. In Saskatchewan,
however, legislation has been enacted stating that
unless called sooner, a general election must be
held the first Monday of November in the fourth
calendar year after the last general election. The
executive — the Premier and the Cabinet —
remains in place throughout the election period.
Thus, while there is no elected Assembly during
an election, there is a continuous government.
