The Sultan of Kurum Ash-Sharqia is the ceremonial head-of-state of Kurum Ash-Sharqia.
The reigning sultan appoints a Crown Prince from within his House, who automatically ascends to the throne upon the Sultan's demise or abdication.
Although not explicitly mentioned in the constitution, the throne is succeeded through agnatic seniority, as per the traditions of the House of Al-Lusirni. This means that the throne shall pass to the Sultan's siblings before going to the next generation.
Powers and duties
The constitution clearly defines the Sultan as a ceremonial head-of-state and explicitly prohibits giving the Sultan any other powers than those stipulated by the constitution.
- He ceremonially appoints the Grand Vizier, who needs a majority in Al-Majlis Al-Watani
- He promulagates laws
- He ceremonially represents the nation abroad
- Under certain conditions, he can dissolve Al-Majlis Al-Watani
The Sultan is the guardian of fundamental rights and of the constitution. He can decide to not sign an act of Al-Majlis Al-Watani into law, if he feels the act violates the constitution. The act is then referred to the Supreme Court. In case the Supreme Court rules the act is constitutional, the Sultan has to sign the act into law.
