The Chancellor of Dracul, officially the Federal Chancellor of the Commonwealth of Dracul, is the head of the federal government of Dracul and the commander in chief of the Dracul Armed Forces during wartime. The chancellor is the chief executive of the Federal Cabinet and heads the executive branch. The chancellor is elected by the Dracul Parliament on the election victory by the people and without debate.

Initially the office of the President was established by Article 11 of the Constitution of Dracul, which lists the duties and responsibilities of the office of the president, electoral method of the president and vice-president, eligibility and the oath of office. Presidents serve a 4-year term, with the inaugural president being Dmitri Howie. On 5 September 2022, the Parliament officially changed the title from President to Chancellor, due to an incoming ceremonial monarch being deemed head of state.

The 1st Chancellor of the Commonwealth of Dracul was Stephen Luke, having assumed office on 5 September 2022, after serving as President since 8 January 2022.
