The Imperial Chancellor of Karnia-Ruthenia, is the head of government of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire and leader of the Cabinet, appointing and dismissing its members. The Imperial Chancellor do not have a fixed mandate, leaving the office by resignation or motion of no confidence of the Imperial Diet.

History[edit | edit source]

The position of Imperial Chancellor of Karnia-Ruthenia derived from the merging of the offices of Minister-President of Ruthenia and Prime Minister of Karnia, the offices of the heads of government of Ruthenia and Karnia before the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016. Eventually, these offices were integrated through the Imperial Constitution of 2017.

Chancellor's standard.

However, the older precedent for a chancellor's office in Karno-Ruthenian history comes from New Europe, that had as its head of government a Reichskanzeler, a position established in 20 January 2009 and abolished in 04 December 2013, that eventually would be transformed into the office of Prime Minister of the North American Confederation, that existed from 28 November 2010 until 01 October 2020. When the North American Confederation was reorganized into the Occidian Empire, this office was occupied by the Kings in the Empire and lasted until 15 December 2021, when Occidia merged to Karnia-Ruthenia.

Is interesting to note that the current Imperial Chancellor, Dylan Callahan, formerly occupied the position of King in the Empire. His former coleague in this office, Joseph Marx, was the third and last Prime Minister of the North American Confederation.
