The Mençei ([mɛnˈsej] ( ); English: Lord President) is the presiding officer of the Senäts. The current Mençei is S:reu Lüc da Schir.

Appointment and Duration of Office

The Mençei is chosen from among the senators and by the senators. The position is held until the senator resigns or ceases to wield senatorial powers in the realm. The Mençei may only be removed by a vote in the Senate of Talossa. A resignation from the office of the Mençei is realised by a letter of advice to the public or to the Sovereign.

Duties

The Mençei leads and presides over the discussions in the Senate chambers, analogue to the Túischac'h. He initiates and concludes discussions and calls for votes on motions and bills. The position of the Mençei, and his powers, are derived from Article 5, Section 8 (Org.5.8) of the Organic Law.
