Supreme Chancellor, also known as the Chancellor, Chancellor of the Republic, Galactic Chancellor, Grand Chancellor, High Chancellor, President of the Republic, or President of the Senate was the title of the Head of State and Government as well as Senate President and Senate Chair of the Old Galactic Republic.

Appointment of the ChancellorEdit

The Chancellor was elected by and from the senators and representatives of the Galactic Senate and could serve two four-year terms before being forced to retire from the Chancellorship because of term limits. The Chancellor could be removed from office at any time by the Senate with a Vote of No Confidence. All of the Chancellors elected between 1400 BBY and 1000 BBY were Jedi, a trend finally broken with the 1000 BBY election of Tarsus Valorum.

Style of officeEdit

The Chancellor of the Republic used the style of "Your Excellency" (this was in contrast to the style of "Your Imperial Majesty" used during the later Galactic Empire), for example when conversing with Grand Army of the Republic officers such as Admiral Wilhuff Tarkin.
