AS 15.40.330. Qualification and Confirmation of Appointee.
- (a) The appointee shall meet the qualifications of a member of the legislature as prescribed in Sec. 2, art. II of the
state constitution, shall be a member of the same political party as that which nominated the predecessor in office,
and shall be subject to confirmation by a majority of the members of the legislature who are members of the same
political party which nominated the predecessor in office and of the same house as was the predecessor in office. If
the predecessor in office was not nominated by a political party or if no other member of the predecessor's political
party is a member of the predecessor's house of the legislature, the governor may appoint any qualified person. If the
appointee is not a member of a political party, the appointment is not subject to confirmation. If the appointee is a
member of a political party, the appointment is subject to confirmation as provided by this section for the
confirmation of political party appointees.
- (b) A member of a political party is a person who supports the political program of a party. The filing for office of a
candidate as an independent or no-party candidate does not preclude a candidate from being a member of a political
party. Recognition of an independent or no-party candidate as a member of a party caucus of members of the legislature
at the legislative session following the election of the independent or no-party candidate is recognition of that
person's party membership at the time filings were made by party candidates for the preceding general election.
