In this traditional Sabian name, Ašuvái is the matronymic and Jens-Galieri is the family name.

Léon Silvio Jens-Galieri, Baron Jens-Galieri (Sabian: leon silvio jens-galieri ašuvái) is a Sabioveronese jurist and former politician and activist, who was Prime Minister of Sabia and Verona in two occasions: for six months in 2014 and during a short period as head of a caretaker government in 2015. He first became Prime Minister following the victory of his party, the Left Alliance, at the March 2014 general election. Since 2017 he has been a magistrate of the Supreme Court of Sabia and Verona and has served as the Supreme Court's President for one term.

He was Minister for Education in Napoléon Bleuberrie's second ministry, from June to October 2013, and served as Vice-Chairman of the Communist Party (KMCW) after its creation. He also served as Vice-Chairperson of the Karasal Council from its creation in 2012 until his appointment as Minister for Education.

Career

Early work

Galieri started his career as a a legislator in the original Legislative Courts, one of the famed "20 of Saint Enric". His moderate socialist views made him one of the few centre-left members of the Socialist Party when it was founded by Napoléon Bleuberrie and Pomme-Gabrielle Gauvier; however, Galieri has ideologically moved to the far-left with the course of time. He became Minister for Regional Identity after Bleuberrie was chosen by the Courts to become First Secretary of the region. During his term, the use of Korean was officialised and then outlawed. It was him who proposed to change the Sabioveronese regional anthem from "La Papayana" to the former anthem, "Harmony". With the signing of the Karasal Treaty, Galieri became Vice-Chairperson of the Karasal Committee for transparency.

Galieri became member of the Salisse City Council when it was created, and finally became Minister again after the May 2013 election, but this time he was appointed to be in charge of the Ministry for Education, succeeding Anton Schubert-Moss. His de-facto time in office was short, after Bleuberrie attempted to organize a self-coup that finally failed on 25 July 2013. In August 2013, he left the Socialist Party and became Vice-Chairman of the Communist Party, founded by Vinter Jens. Following the formation of the Federal Union of Juclandian Lands, Galieri and Jens agreed to reunite the KMCW and the CM into the Left Alliance with the help of the Roots Party's left-wing faction. He was chosen Leader of the Alliance.

Premiership

As the leader of the Left Alliance, Galieri was the party's Prime Minister candidate for the March 2014 general election, the first election since the adoption of the Constitution of 2014. Following what has been characterized as a "successful campaign", Galieri led the Alliance to become the largest party in the Chamber of Deputies with 33% of the popular vote and 8 out of 20 seats.

On 1 April 2014, Galieri formed the fifth government with approval from the Chamber of Deputies. The Galieri cabinet was the first government since the signing of the Karasal Treaty not to be a national unity government, composed only of Left Alliance and Convergence and Amity members, the first true coalition government in Sabia and Verona's parliamentary democracy. The first Chamber of Deputies served for a six-month term, and so did Galieri's government.

Galieri's premiership has been described as a relatively peaceful and mildly inactive, and the transition from Stefanović's term was smooth and uneventful, signaling a healing point in Sabioveornese democracy following the 2013 coup attempt. A highlight of Galieri's premiership was the passing of the Law against gender and/or sexual orientation-based discrimination", also known as the Angel Law, in July 2014. The law, which passed with 18 out of 20 deputies in favor, made Sabia and Veroa the FUJL's first province to enact laws protecting LGBT persons.

For the September 2014 election, Galieri recommended the nomination of Ernesto DaVilha as the Left Alliance's Prime Minister-candidate. DaVilha and the Left-Convergence coalition lost their majority to the Unity Party, led by Bertrand Rivière, who became Prime Minister on 1 October 2014.

Post-premiership

In early July 2015, Galieri became, alongside other major Sabioveronese politicians, a participant of the Haronos Plan which intended to move Sabia and Verona's capital from the Valtir to somewhere outside of Venezuela's sphere of influence, as the economic and social situation in the macronation became less stable. In August 2015 he participated in the Congress at Salisse, and became one of the authors of the Constitution of 2015. On 25 August 2015 he, alongside other Haronos members, became one of the founders of the new capital city of Alios, where he was chosen to become interim Prime Minister until the 2015 elections could be held. In 2017 he became a member of the Sabioveronese Constitutional Assembly, which redacted the current Constitution of 2017.

Supreme Court appointment

After the adoption of the 2017 constitution, the Supreme Court of Sabia and Verona was created, and Galieri was named as a potential magistrate of the court as he had been a past member of the Sabioveronese judiciary, as Vice Chair of the Karasal Council. He was nominated magistrate and President of the Supreme Court on 22 May 2017, and appointed by the King the following day.

Personal life

Galieri is of Italian and Chinese origin. He became a citizen of Sabia and Verona in October 2012. He has been married to Snø Jens since 2013; they currently live together in the Darmosari District of Alios. Before becoming a participant of the Haronos Plan, Galieri lived in an apartament in the Pâsh Moukare District of Salisse. Galieri is known to be a good friend of Pomme-Gabrielle Gauvier and Ulla Müller. Gauvier and Müller are Jens' godparents. He is an Atheist, but follows the Pahunnia philosophy and considers himself a "Non-practicing Pahunist".

Jens and Galieri have become celebrities in Sabia and Verona, and Jens is still sometimes lovingly addressed as "First Gentleman". Since 2015, the couple have hyphenated their last names and they're now both legally known as Léon and Snø Jens-Galieri.
