The Governor-General of Jamaica represents the Queen of Jamaica, Elizabeth II.

The monarch, on the advice of the prime minister, appoints a Governor-General as his or her representative in Jamaica. Both the monarch and the Governor-General hold much power, but rarely exercise it, usually only in emergencies and, in some cases,[which?] war.

The Governor-General represents the monarch on ceremonial occasions such as the state opening of Parliament, the presentation of honours, and military parades. Under the Constitution, he or she is given authority to act in some matters, for example in appointing and disciplining officers of the civil service, proroguing Parliament, and so on, but only in a few cases does he or she have the power to act entirely at his or her own discretion.[3]

Jamaican republicanism, a position which is held by the current Jamaican government, generally advocates for the replacement of the Governor-General with a non-executive president.
