Politics - Politik
Leopoldinsel is a Federal Republic, modelling its government partly off of the Austrian Governing System. The President is the Head of State, and cannot preform large outside affairs and matters without the approval of the Nationalrat (National Council) and the Bundesrat (Federal Council). The President is elected for a term of 4 months, this is subject to change in the future. The Chancellor is Head of Government, and is elected for a term of 6 months. The Chancellor is elected separately from the President, and can serve up to three consecutive terms, although it can be given an exemption. The exact same multi-party system is used for Chancellor elections as in Presidential Elections. Chancellors speak and lead the Nationalrat, the executive and more important body of the two government councils, and a speaker is appointed by the Chancellor to lead the Bundesrat.
