Interior Ministry of Essexia
|Interior Ministry of Essexia|
|Appointer||Emperor Terry of Essexia on the advice of the Lord Jamie of Essexia|
The Interior Ministry of Essexia is a government department of the Commonwealth of Essexia, and is a key department in the Cabinet of Essexia. It is in charge the general administration of the Essexian National Order, which is the Essexian equivalent of the civil service. The department is headed by the Interior Minister who is currently Earl Jack of Molrams, who is responsible for many of the internal affairs of Essexia, mostly updating of the population records, the administration of Parliament records and other archives. They also hold one of the two pardoning powers of the Commonwealth.
The Interior Minister originally held a role with responsibilities more resemblant to that of a British Home Secretary. Under the 2019 Constitution, the Interior Minister was a role that became appointed by the monarch under the advice of the First Minister of Essexia, although in theory the Emperor has no say in the matter and has never prevented a First Ministerial appointment.
List of Junior Departments
Under the Junior Ministries Act, a series of new departments under the Interior Ministry were established to help it cope with its increasing workload and to assign a Junior Minister to each of the Interiors key areas. The three junior ministries are;
- Office of Immigration and Citizenship.
- Office of Emergency Services.
- Office of Security and Conduct.
The Office of Immigration and Citizenship is in charge of handling the immigration into and from Essexia, and the registration, recording, and handling of all Essexian Citizenship's. The Office of Emergency Services is in charge of handling the operation of the National Police, Fire, Ambulance, Coastguard, and Air Marshall departments, with the aim of making the Citizens of Essexias’ lives safer. The Office of Security and Conduct handles the National Security of the Nation in any appropriate circumstance, and the conduct and behaviour of the Parliament, Crown Ministries, Junior Ministries, and Civil Services. Notably, the latter department holds significant power for a junior department; after the Ministerial Code of Conduct 2019 its role became more structured and had the framework it needed to operate within the bounds of the law.
As of present, there are 4 Ministers in the Interior Ministry, including the Interior Minister himself.
