8.3.1 Elected Autocracy: a House Government Form
(See also: HELP GOVERNMENT FORMS, HELP TRIUMVIRATE, HELP DICTATORSHIP, HELP OLIGARCHY, HELP SUPPORT, HELP CHALLENGE, HELP SUCCESSOR) This is the government form originally in use by all Houses. In an Elected Autocracy, a single leader holds office until contested and defeated in an election. Modern Elected Autocracy may have certain other limits, varying from House to House, including: 1) the leader may be restricted to a single consecutive term (or not), and 2) leader may serve a term of fixed length (or indefinite, as now). Limits on Return to Office -------------------------- Once the autocrat leaves office, he may not contest for, nor hold the position again until at least two other people, not himself, hold it. Powers ------ The Autocratic House Leader makes all appointments, chooses the House Patron, and wields all powers not otherwise delegated to appointees.
