The President of Akashi (Miranian: 大統領 Daitōryō; Gothic: 𐍂𐌴𐌹ᚴ𐌹𐍆𐌰𐌸𐍃 Reikifaþs) is the head of state of Akashi. The President is directly elected, and acts largely as a ceremonial figurehead with no executive power.
The President is elected in direct elections held every five years. Presidential elections use a two-round system: if no candidate receives an absolute majority (more than 50%) of the votes cast in the first round, the top two candidates proceed to a runoff.
Presidential elections are held on the last Saturday in June, simultaneously with other elections. If necessary, runoffs are held a week later.
Once elected, the President's party membership is automatically suspended for their term in office, and they cannot hold any other offices or occupations.
- I solemnly and sincerely affirm and declare that I will respect the Constitution and laws, and always serve the general interest of the Akashian people.
The President is not allowed to deviate from the text of the affirmation.
In the event of a vacancy of office, the National Assembly names an interim president until a snap election is held.
The President's role is mostly ceremonial. They represent the unity and continuity of the state, and oversee the norms and conduct of day-to-day politics. They ceremonially represent Akashi in international relations, and are the commander in chief of the Akashian National Armed Forces.
Most presidential acts are done at the instruction of the cabinet. The President officially promulgates laws approved by the National Assembly, and can enact decrees proposed by the government, which expire automatically after 30 days. The President can refuse to sign a bill if they believe it unconstitutional or improperly passed. The bill is then returned to the legislature, which may amend it, withdraw it, or pass it without any changes.
The President formally dissolves legislatures and calls elections, both locally and nationally. Following a general election, they designate the Prime Minister and ask them to form a government.
The President appoints and swears in judges, civil servants, and military officers at the national level. They grant pardons and commutations, and award decorations and honours, with the advice and consent of the government.
The President's official residence is The President's Residence (大統領官邸 Daitōryō Kantei; 𐍂𐌴𐌹ᚴ𐌹𐍆𐌰𐌳𐌴 𐍂𐌰𐌶𐌽 Reikifadē Razn), in Hirakawa.
They usually take a holiday during the summer prorogation, briefer leave during the New Year season, and are entitled to parental leave.
The President has transportation and security services at their disposal at all times. They can be transported within Akashi and abroad by specially modified aircraft from the Akashi National Air Force.
