In Tropico 4, how do I get a Minister so I cna use edicts, as in the Minister of Education or the Minister of Defense?

You need to build a ministry and then you can hire whoever you want. Of course, you need to have people that can do the job. For example, for a military minister you need a good general and so forth. EDIT: You can also hire foreign ministers but that's not advisable as far as my experience goes.

    It's a viable choice early on when you really need those edicts but there are either no local candidates or they're all incompetent idiots, which can really screw you over in the random events. Oct 17, 2015 at 7:55
  • Well, i usually have to hire the military minister because my own people are dumb. Then i can start enslaving my people. Militariy dictatorship FTW! Oct 19, 2015 at 7:45
