His position is briefly described in the the Council of Driftwood dictate D-818-1 "Establishing the Alrrigian Republic" of 1663. This dictate confers to the president a right to make law, under the provision that it can be blocked by the Council of Driftwood with a simple majority. The president acts as government leader, this role is not described in Alriggian law, which relies heavily on customary law. Before the 1663 dictate, the powers of the president were not limited by codified law at all.
