The Chancellor is the chief adviser to the Monarch of Haiti, head of the Imperial Council, and overall head of the government acting on behalf of the monarch. The Chancellor and their cabinet of ministers are held accountable for their actions and policies by the monarch, the Estates General, and the electorate of Haiti.
