l'Etats should meet to elect a Sénéchal as well as to discuss our holding our own elections rather than relying on the Chancery.

Thor Deyaert is the current Sénéchal as per the wiki, however we should have had an election since then as that was 2018.

Constitution of Cézembre

Article 10. L'Etats shall have power to pass any bill into law by a simple majority vote of its Voting Members. Le Sénéchal shall send out a notification of voting period, of at least seven days. Each member shall have a prescribed amount of time in which to cast his vote (by email, telephone or forum post) before voting closes.

Chapter III- Le Sénéchal
Article 11. Le Sénéchal shall be the elected leader of Cezembre. Le Sénéchal shall have the power to issue proclamations which have the force of law. These proclamations may be appealed or amended as regular laws. These proclamations may not act as acts of attainders or any activity prohibited by the Organic Law (with regards to Prime Dictats). These proclamations must be counter-signed by the Governor-General (or the King, in case of, by lack of appointment or by long-term absence, a Governor-General).

Article 12. The Sénéchal may appoint a deputy Sénéchal. The deputy may act in name of the Sénéchal when instructed by the Sénéchal to do so or whenever the Sénéchal is absent for a long period, in which case all duties of the Sénéchal will be temporarily taken over by the deputy.

Article 13. A Sénéchal shall be elected, by the citizens of Cezembre, in an election conducted by the Sénéchal or his appointed agent, in the event there is no incumbent Sénéchal or the Sénéchal is inactive for more than a week, the Governor-General or his appointed agent. All citizens of Cézembre have the right to vote and/or be a candidate in this election.

Article 14. Elections as described by article 10 will take, no less and no longer than 3 weeks. Cézembrians must announce their candidacy in the first week of the election and polls shall open on the first day of the 2nd week and close on the last day of the third week.

Article 15. Elections, as described in articles 10 and 11 will start no earlier than one week and no later than two weeks after the election deadline of Talossan general elections or after a resolution has been approved by a majority of the l'Etats de Cézembre removing the previous Sénéchal or should the Sénéchal, resign, die or be unable to fulfill his duties for any reason."

A week has passed, Obviously Thor is unavailable (as we did not a Sénéchal for the last year) and I would like to ask the governor-general  Sir Cresti Siervicül to run the election in his sted.

Well there was some sort of election last year in which we elected Dame Litz Cjantscheir. Sadly, she has been unavailable as well.

I guess I can run the election if needed, but either Dame Litz or Sir Cresti would have to appoint me to do so.

Hear Hear!  This will help to overcome inertia, or if that appointment is not forthcoming, then perhaps we can petition the King.

This doesn't appear to be a particularly elegant system...
