Im not, I mean like good allies of lord, could submit 1 vote as a faction because, correct me if im wrong, the chancellor has a high political role, which may affect dimplomats with some other allies.

Giving away power from the people of Lordaeron to the rulers of foreign factions would be most undemocratic so I'll have to politely decline your idea.

The Chancellor and Chancellor election
The Chancellor is the head of government of Lordaeron and uses the title ***Chancellor-of-Lordaeron. The duties of the Chancellor are to receive power and claim reports from the dukes and may take any measures necessary to ensure the duchy complies with the constitution. The Chancellor may request of the Emperor that a commoner or count is promoted and that a duke or count is demoted.

The Chancellor decides foreign policy based on objectives given to him by the Emperor. He may therefore change relationship settings and may in time of war order any mod or commoner to move to a certain location and take certain actions. Failure to follow these orders may be punished with being kicked from the Empire the one refusing is a commoner and a recommendation of demotion to the Emperor if the one refusing is a mod.

To assist in carrying out foreign, the Chancellor may appoint a mod to be foreign minister who may change relationship settings based on the Chancellors instructions and a mod to be defense minister who may give orders in time of war and give out the same punishments as the Chancellor if the orders are not followed. These ministers have no special title but use their regular duke or count titles.

The Chancellor is elected by the people of Lordaeron in an election organized by the Emperor. All mods are eligible candidates for Chancellor. The Emperor must announce that an election is taking place one week before it begins, and during this time all candidates must inform the Emperor they wish to run for Chancellor. Once a week has passed, election week begins and during this time any member of Lordaeron may inform the Emperor who that member wishes to vote for. Only votes for eligible candidates are counted and any member attempting to vote more than once using multiple loses the right to vote entirely in that election. When election week is over, the candidate with the most votes becomes Chancellor as soon as a ceremony can be held in the Capital.

The Chancellor rules until he resigns or until the Emperor fires him, and the Emperor may only do so if he deems the Chancellor is incompetent or has betrayed the Empire. New Chancellor elections must be announced immediately after the Chancellor has been fired. The Emperor takes up all the duties of the Chancellor until the new Chancellor is elected.

Added this segment to the constitution:

Chancellor election cannot be announced during a national emergency such as a major war. If a national emergency happens after an election announcement is made and before the voting ends, the election is cancelled and a new chancellor election has to be announced when the national emergency is over. The Emperor defines when a national emergency has begun and when it has ended.

I hereby remove foreign policy from the role of the Emperor and grant the chancellor this power, as long as the newly added principles below are followed:

The Chancellor decides the foreign policy and military actions of Lordaeron based on the principle of peace through might. This means that Lordaeron should whenever possible reserve its strength to have a strong deterrence against invasion. Foreign factions may therefore never be attacked unless in retaliation against hostile actions taken against Lordaeron. Lordaeron may only defend allied factions that credibly would defend Lordaeron if it was attacked, and the security increase they provide Lordaeron should be equal to or greater than the security decrease fighting their enemies would mean.

Added these powers to the chancellor:

During wartime the chancellor may also make temporary claims and temporary fortifications anywhere in the world to assist the war effort. The chancellor defines what is to be considered wartime.

The election has lead to a very nasty mood in Lordaeron. A special vote in the Imperial Council has abolished democracy and the election and granted the Emperor the right to appoint the chancellor. robbinho15 has been appointed chancellor.
