Julian Pieterson is a senior Erusian politician and trade unionist who is currently serving as the leader of the Party of Socialist Labour, the third largest political party in the Democratic People's Republic of Erusia and the coalition partner of the ruling Erusian National Communist Party. He has served as a member of the National People's Assembly since October 15th 2009, when he won the constituency of Akers in a by-election as an independent candidate, becoming the first politician in Erusian history to win an election without the endorsement of a major party. He became leader of the Labour Party on the day of its formation two months later in December, and to this day is the only Labour member of the Assembly, though Labour deputy leader Mia Brown also held a seat during the 5th Sitting of the chamber.
On the day of his by-election victory, Pieterson was elevated to the cabinet by then-President Kenneth Maisano, being appointed National People's Executive Commissioner for Labour and becoming the second-ever non-Communist to serve on the National People's Executive Committee. He remained in this posting when Kai Roosevelt was elected President, serving until April 26th 2010, when in the aftermath of Roosevelt's landslide general election victory he was appointed as Commissioner for Regional Affairs with the responsibility of supervising the government's program for local government reform.
