|Chair of the Micronational Economic Group
Mr./Ms. Chair (informal)
|Appointer||Council of the MEG|
|Term length||Three months|
|Inaugural holder||Henry Twain|
|Formation||27 July 2016|
The Chairman of the Micronational Economic Group, officially known as the Chair of the Council of the MEG and informally referred to as the Counselor-Chair, is the political and economic leader of the Micronational Economic Group. The Chairman is often thought to be not only the most important official of the Group, but to be the leader of micronational economics during his term of office. The Chairperson is one of five senior officials is one of five Chairmen of the MEG and is widely thought to be the most important of them all. While holding no technical power higher than other members of the Council (beyond appointing a Vice Chair), the Chairperson serves as the speaker of the Council, and as the Group's representative to the rest of the micronational community.
According to the Foundation Treaty of the Micronational Economic Group, the Chairman possesses the following powers:
- (a) shall chair it and drive forward its work;
- (b) shall ensure the preparation and continuity of the work of the Micronational Economic Group
- (c) shall endeavour to facilitate cohesion and consensus within the Council;
- (d) may appoint a Vice Chair from the Council or any lower advisory delegations;
Apart from the appointment of inferior officers, the Chairman serves no greater set authority. However, as sections A through C point out, the Chair serves a social and spiritual responsibility of facilitating infallibility to the best of his ability. Additionally, the Chairperson is known for serving as the de facto representative of the MEG and the entire micronational economic community to outsiders of the Group. He is often considered the leader of micronational economics during his tenure.
The Chair of the MEG is elected to a three month-long term, according to provisions set out in the Group's Foundation Treaty. He is elected by his peers on the Council, with a simple plurality of Council banks required for his election. No provisions are in place regarding consecutive terms, and it is thus assumed that back-to-back terms are legal.
