Secretary-General of the PEACE Global Community
This article is part of the series:
The Secretary-General of the PEACE Global Community is the democratically elected leader of the Global Community and commander of the PEACEKeepers. The Secretary-General acts as the spokesperson for the alliance.
The Secretary-General's roles are laid out in Articles 2 and 3 of the PEACE Charter.
The Secretary-General's primary role is to act as a spokesperson for the alliance. Announcements are made by the Secretary-General on the behalf of the Global Community, and he is the alliance's chief diplomat.
His (or her) other major role is to direct the actions of the Global Community PEACEKeeping Force. As of September 2008, the Secretary-General has invoked this role twice: once to commit soldiers to Hungary in World War I and again in September to protect Austria and Bulgaria from hostile political coups.
Additionally, the Secretary-General holds a vote on the PEACE Global Security Council.
Term and selection
Like all political positions in eRepublik, the Secretary-General is elected for a one-month term. He or she is elected on the second of each month to allow all new Presidents in PEACE member nations to vote in accordance with their policies.
The PEACE Charter stipulates that the Secretary-General must be selected by the Security Council "from the pool of Representatives," but the Security Council has to date ignored that stipulation by re-electing Nicolae Carpathia in September 2008 despite his never having served as a Representative.
As of July 2009, there have been nine Secretaries-General.
