The Federal Congressional Mememaster-General of the Federal Republic of Whestcorea, alternatively styled the Congressional Mememaster-General or simply the Mememaster-General, is the head of government of the Whestcorean Congress, as well as the effective head of government for Whestcorea at large. Serving as the executive of the Whestcorean Congress, all bills passed by the Congress require the Mememaster-General's signature before they become law, though the Congress can override him with a two-thirds majority should the office-holder elect to veto the legislation.

Constitutional authority

The Constitution gives the Mememaster-General a number of powers, chief among which is the ability to veto legislation. They are also the de facto highest ranking officer in the Whestcorean military, serving as Commander-in-chief of the Republic and thus having executive control over the Armed Forces.

They can also issue Executive Orders which have the power of federal law, unless either a majority of the Congress move to overrule him or the Supreme Court rules his Orders unconstitutional. Mememaster-Generals may issue these orders at any time they see fit.

Furthermore, they can exert authority over Departments without heads to staff them if ever this becomes the case, to ensure that departments without executives in charge of them do not fall into inactivity.

However, while the Mememaster-General may submit legislation like any Member of Congress, they do not have a vote unless they are separately elected as a Member of Congress.
