The Chancellor of Gristol-Serkonos is the head of government and heads the High Council. The current, 25th Chancellor of Gristol-Serkonos is Kaniehtí:io Fox, leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Gristol-Serkonos following the 2019 Federal Elections. Chancellors in Gristol-Serkonos are styled "The Right Honourable," a privilege maintained for life.

The Chancellor is in charge of the Office of the Chancellor. The chancellor also chooses the ministers who make up the High Council. The two groups, with the authority of the Parliament of Gristol-Serkonos, manage the Government of Gristol-Serkonos and the Royal Gristo-Serkonan Armed Forces. The High Council and the Chancellor appoints governor generals of crown lands, federal court judges, and heads of state corporations and government agency administrators. Under the 1925 Constitution, all these powers are actually vested in the monarchs of Gristol-Serkonos and can overrule the decisions of the chancellor and the High Council.

The office of the chancellor exists only as per long-established convention, as it is not outlined in any constitutional document. The monarchs must select as Chancellor the person most likely to command the confidence of the elected Chamber of Representatives; this individual is typically the leader of the political party that holds the largest number of seats in that chamber.
