The Imperator is the chairman of the Renasian Council, serving as a de facto speaker for that chamber, in any circumstances where a public spokesperson be needed to voice the concerns or praises of the Council.
The Imperator is a role in Technocratic Renasian Governance. The Imperator is an elected autocrat, elected on a one year term by the citizens of Technocratic Renasia.
Conventions in the relations between Imperator and Renasian Council
There are two main conventions in the interactions that occur between the Imperator and the Renasian council at any one time. They are key in keeping the balance and in insuring that the government does not fall into tyrannical despotism headed by the Imperator. The first, called the Majority Convention, outlines a situation in which the council comes to a unanimous verdict on an issue in opposition of the Imperator. The Imperator is then bound by convention, though not law, to follow this lead and to enact it. The second is the 'Minority Convention, in which, if the Imperator sides with a minority vote in the Council, he is obliged to make this full and clear to the populous when he signs the new legislation into law.
