Lonenberg (GP) – On 28 September 2004, His Royal Majesty, King August Charles II, appointed Sir Robert Davis to the Office of Royal Chancellor. This position is the highest in Götzborg’s civilian Government. With the recent boost in Götzborg’s citizenship and participation levels, His Majesty’s timing seems to be perfect.
When asked about the appointment, His Excellency said:
“I was rather surprised when His Majesty asked me to become the Royal Chancellor. From the inception of my citizenship in Götzborg, my only goals were in relation to the Judiciary. Once I had been appointed Lord Justice of the Crown, I really felt like I’d accomplished all I set out to do. Götzborg now has a working Judicial System, a comprehensive Code of Law, and a wonderful institution for the training of Legal Officers. I know that things are bound to change, and that what I’ve helped to create will no doubt go through many incarnations; but that is the nature of Government, and it’s one of the best signs of growth. I am looking forward to helping lead Götzborg as we embark on a new era of prosperity, as well as a strengthening of collaborations amongst the Ministers and citizens of our great nation.”
In the interests of eliminating a potential biased, Sir Robert was commanded by His Majesty to step down as Lord Justice of the Crown before taking over as Royal Chancellor. His Excellency does, however, retain his position as the Foreign Minister.
