The Monarchy of the Cheskgariyan-Litvanian Commonwealth, formally the Crown of the Kingdom of Cheskgariya and the Grand Duchy of Litvania, are the two heads of state of the Cheskgariyan-Litvanian Commonwealth. The Crown consists of two persons, namely the King of Cheskgariya, and the Grand Duke of Litvania. This makes the two persons co-monarchs. The Commonwealth is unique in that the King of Cheskgariya is elected by all citizens in a free and fair election upon the death or abdication of a previous King. This makes the Commonwealth an elective monarchy. The Grand Duke is a hereditary position, who does not undergo election. The current co-monarchs were promulgated on the 22 November 2020, alongside the promulgation of the Commonwealth. The current King of Cheskgariya is Christian Newton and his co-monarch is Frederick, Grand Duke of Litvania.

History

The monarchy was established on the 22 November 2020 and promulgated together with the Commonwealth. The basic operations of the monarchy are codified in the Governance Act 2021.

Elections

Read more: The Sejm
The head of state, the King of Cheskgariya, undergoes an election upon the death or abdication of the previous monarch. This process is known internally as the free election (Polish: Wolna elekcja), and takes place within weeks of the dethroning of the previous monarch. The election is open to all citizens, who select candidates of the government to run for the office. The office of the King is open to all members of the Crown Council and the Sejm, and all citizens. Elections are conducted by the Sejm, in three distinct sessions. The Convocation Sejm is convocated by the Grand Duke of Litvania, and is responsible for organising elections. Then ,the Election Sejm oversees the elections. Finally, the Coronation Sejm makes specific arrangement for the coronation of the incoming co-monarch.

Elections take place over a few days, with all citizens participating. Once the winner of the election is clear and decided, the Sejm electoral commission declares the victor. The King-elect is then briefed by the Grand Duke on all sorts of matters of state, from ceremonial duties of the King to the current political situation. A physical coronation does not take place, however the King-elect then swears an oath or affirmation which confirms his inauguration as King of Cheskgariya (this is considered a coronation in law).

Regency

Typically, the Commonwealth functions with a dual monarchy, however a regency is kept in place if needed. Usually, the Grand Duke is the regent when the King is indisposed, and if both the King and the Grand Duke are indisposed then a named Regent is appointed by the Crown.
