The Sénéchal is the elected leader of the Cézembrean government. The Sénéchal acts as a provincial Secretary of State and Scribe, which means (s)he is responsible for conducting provincial elections, referenda and votes in l'Etats, the provincial assembly of Cézembre. According to the Information Act the Sénéchal is also responsible for keeping online information about the province up to date. The Sénéchal may issue proclamations, which act as provincial law. These proclamations must be signed by the Governor-General. The Current Sénéchal is Thor Deyaert.

Election of a Sénéchal

A new Sénéchal is elected after the elections, or when the previous Sénéchal resigns or is removed by l'Etats. Elections start between one and two weeks after General Elections and take three weeks. Cézembreans who want to become Sénéchal must announce their candidacy in the first week and the actual voting takes place in the last two weeks.


Until July 15th, 2012, the office of the Sénéchal was referred to as Seneschal. Given that the Prime Minister of Talossa is also called Seneschal, the citizens of Cézembre voted in a referendum to rename the title of the provincial premier during the elections to the 44th Cosa. The amendment to the Constitution of Cézembre changed the title of the provincial premier to Sénéchal and was proclaimed by Governor-General Sir Cresti Siervicül shortly after the referendum.

2019 Elections

For the 2019 election, nobody registered as a candidate in the first week, so Thor Deyaert resigned to trigger another election.
