The Chancellor is a constitutional office created with the passage of the Third Constitution of the Social Liberal Union. The powers and duties of the Speaker are mainly outlined in Article 9 of the Constitution. The Chancellor is the presiding officer of the Court of Justice, head of the judicial branch, and serves as the Vice Chair of the Law Commission. The Chancellor is elected for a five month term, and no nation can be elected more than twice consecutively.

The position of Chancellor was created with the passage of the Third Constitution, consolidating the powers of the Parliamentary, Executive, and Free Justice positions which previously oversaw the Court. The Justice positions were abolished at that point to increase judicial efficiency.
