Elected by citizens of the Concord to a six-year term, the Chancellor directs all aspects of the executive branch, including the military abroad and police forces at home. The executive branch carries out orders from the Assembly and the Consulate. As the commander-in-chief of Star Force, the Concord Defense Corps, and the Concord Marines, and the ultimate overseer of the Concord Administrators, the Chancellor wields considerable influence over the affairs of the Concord.
The current Chancellor, Tor Rustoski, began his six-year term in 2500. He was a StarMech hero from the Second Galactic War who entered politics following a famed Old Space battle. His popularity has yet to be challenged by a major crisis. Rustoski spends most of his days insuring his popularity by keeping a careful eye on affairs in the Stellar Ring and Open Space.
Vice Chancellor Elizabeth Fortuna and dozens of Directors control various departments of the executive branch. At least one director is always resident in any Concord Neutrality, and many directors travel from system to system to keep a close watch on their wards. They are appointed to the offices by the Chancellor and confirmed by the Assembly.
