Federal Council (Asea)
The Federal Council constitutes the federal government of the Confederation of the Antarctica's Elain of Atilnia, directs the federal administration and serves as collective Head of State and of Government.
It is a collegial body of seven members, elected for a four-year mandate by the Federal Assembly which also exercises oversight over the Council.
The President of the Federation is elected by the Assembly from among the seven members, traditionally in rotation and for a one-year term; the President chairs the government and assumes representative functions. However, the president is a primus inter pares (first among equals) with no additional powers, and remains the head of a department within the administration.
