|Governor General||Jafar bin Fahad|
The newly-formed constitutional monarchy that would become North Syria held its first ever federal elections on November 1, 2011 as King Fahad decided that his power should be vested in a Prime Minister, adopting Westminster politics. As leader of the Free Democratic Party, Hussein emerged victorious. Over the course of his leadership, he would emerge to represent right-wing politics in the Kingdom, passing a number of bills that promote right-wing politicies and helped turn North Syria into the power that it is today in the Middle East.
Of these policies, they included making English co-official to Arabic in placement of French, tightening border security and immigration policies, supporting capital punishment, and repealing the Peaceful Citizens Act. Among others, he also supports the Aramaic Christian restoration movement.
However, his leadership was challenged by the left-leaning Progressive Party, led by Princess Razia, the third daughter of King Fahad.
Because of his right-wing position, he has been criticized by a number of human rights activists, stating that he was "repeating" Bashar al-Assad's rule in North Syria, a country that the North Syrian people had fought to become independant from.
In 2015, El-Hussein stated that he would make a run for a second term as Prime Minister. He was opposed largerly by Razia bint Fahad of the Progressive Party. Although Razia bint Fahad was expected to win a landslide victory, the FDP, led by El-Hussein would win 89 seats of the 200 in the Lower Court of the North Syrian Parliament, topping the Progressive Party's 76 seats. Razia bint Fahad and other left-wing groups in North Syria accused Muhsein el-Hussein of rigging the election.
