Supreme Council

Supreme Council - The Executive (The Government)


The Supreme Council forms the country's Executive where laws and regulations ratified by the National Assembly are executed. It is essentially 'The Government'.

The Supreme Council consists of 12 elected counsellors, each elected for a 6 year term. The same counsellor can be elected for a maximum of two terms only. Candidates for the Supreme Council must have been born in Heladiva or if naturalised as citizens must have lived in Heladiva continuously for at least 15 years. Candidates for the Supreme Council must be persons of good standing without any criminal convictions in any jurisdiction. A candidate with a military background needs to have had at least 5 years separation from the military before becoming eligible as a candidate for the Supreme Council. All Counsellors of the Supreme Council are legally accountable to the Independent Council against Corruption and Due Process (ICCDP)

Each counsellor is elected for a specific role within the council (see below) and heads their relevant government agency. Supreme Council elections are held every 3 years (on the 1st Saturday of March) where half of the Council is up for election.

The chair of the Supreme Council is rotated equally between Supreme Counsel for Health and Wellbeing (the Prime Minister) and the Supreme Counsel for The Treasury (the Treasurer). The Chair of the Supreme Council facilitates council meetings according to the constitution and upholds the sacred Hela values of Humanity, Wisdom and Self-sufficiency.

The role of the Prime minister is also to represent the Supreme Council (The Government) at appropriate functions as well as to advise the President of matters before the Supreme Council.

The role of the Supreme Counsel for the National Assembly is to advise the Supreme Council of matters before the National Assembly and to introduce the Supreme Council's bills to the National Assembly.

Supreme Council meetings take place on the 4th week of the month (Monday through to Friday). There are at least ten meetings a year, each 5 days in duration. All 12 Counsellors (or their representatives as per constitution) must be present to convene a Supreme Council meeting. Matters before the Supreme Council shall only be passed or rejected on a majority conscience vote.
