Gabriel Leitner is a Shoassauan politician who served as the Prime Minister of Shoassau from 2017-22, succeeded Jean Duencker and preceding William Eurenne. A member of the Democratic Party, he instituted economic reform which expanded Shoassauan trade to neighboring nations with a permit program, led membership admission for WEDA, and advocated for human rights on the international stage. Despite his international renown, he gradually became unpopular within Shoassau for his handling of corruption, with dozens of his cabinet ministers being forced to resign.
