Has any of your national leaders resigned from office?

Postby Towson » Wed Jun 26, 2013 5:49 pm

Has your head of state ever resigned and if so for what reason

When none officially but Berry Marxs has decided not to seek a 2nd term as President so he may of just resigned there.It's was the State of the Labor Party and The Government it self.

High Overseer Charles Gregor not only resigned from his duties as leader, but signed over the republic to his son Vash to become an Empire. Although, this empire would overall be much better for the Ocearan people than the republic ever was. (Also Vash in this case is not a reference to "Vash the Stampede" but actually is a reference to Warhammer 40k Dawn of War: Dark Crusade. Captain Gregor Vash -> Vash Gregor)

No, but President Aris State refused to run for a second term. In fact, he outlawed second terms. And yet Havl's current president, Tresa Jane Adams, is in the midst of an illegal second term. Go figure.

Technically Auzkhian monarchs "abdicate rather than "resign from office"
Emperor Ferdinand abdicated in 1848, he was succeeded by his nephew Franz Joseph.
Charles V Holy Roman Emperor retired to a monastery in 1556.

Well, Thomas Talonsson was forced to resign after the aftermath of the Grand Alliance War and the Second Civil War led the populace to blame him for getting Saurisia involved in affairs it shouldn't have been involved in. Howard Schmidt also had to resign as his administration was becoming increasingly unpopular with accusations of corruption, infringements on the constitution, and spying on the political opposition, even within his own party.

Yes. President Vėskō Šer of the now Debunked Liberal Coalition Front stepped down in 1977 after the Murder of one of his political opponents. Although he was never convicted of any criminal activity he resigined just a few hours after the innocent verdict. Probably due to pressure from Cabinet to keep the government in strong standing.

Empress Tandi felt she was getting too old, and resigned after a 77 year reign in 2276. In 2290, she is still alive at 114, and perfectly healthy. She helped Emperor Brown with internal affairs during his short term of leadership, and Emperor Zane considers her his top advisor.

Yes, in 1969 after many months of a "firefight" with an old enemy, Leonid Brezhnev was forced to resign by the Politboro due to a lack of management and not getting the economy going again, which took a hit during the confrontation.

Russel Gyion, Emperor during the Gyion Dynasty. After several conflicts, he stepped down for this reason(quoted from his last speech): "My fellow citizens, we, as a nation, are young and proud. We stand tall, proud for our Parliament, proud for our forefathers, who let us be who we our today!!! But, alas, our country is not the best. Our laws are outdated, our cities old. We must find a new leader, who will revolutionize our country, who will start the Industrial Revolution 2.0!! Please, find that leader, nurture him, help him. I will ask you, nay, I beg you, to not impede in his way! Instead, show him the light, and he will follow it, leading our nation into the ranks of world society. It was an honor serving for you. Thank you."

Often when the Prime Minister's party loses the general election, they "resign" from the office.

In recent history, however, only once has the Prime Minister resigned due to reasons other than their party's defeat: in 2007, when Conservative Prime Minister Daniel Victor Martell resigned as Prime Minister and member of the assembly for being part of the expenses scandal.

Similarly, only once has a monarch relinquished the throne: in 1936. King Joseph II's unpopularity, his poor grasp on politics, and the rise to power of future dictator Villanueves the year before led his wife, Queen Maria Magdalena de Habsburgo, to ask him on her deathbed to give up the throne to his sister Remedios, who was considered everything he was not and could potentially negotiate with the increasingly hostile Prime Minister. He abdicated one week after Magdalena's death.

Early FT: There's only been one leader... needless to say, he's never resigned.

Mid-FT: Okay, he finally resigned in the year 100,000 CE. He is to be succeeded by his daughter, Josalyn.

Late FT: Every hundred thousand years, the current Emperor or Empress abdicates and allows their eldest child to take their place on the throne. Since there is Angel blood in the Imperial bloodline, all members of the Imperial family are immortal.

Several leaders have resigned. There are only three ways they can get out of office. Losing an election, resigning, or dying. The primary way leaders leave office is being voted out, but popular ones usually resign just before an election because they want to retire.

Yes. In fact the last Arch Duke left power when he was certain his chosen successor could take his place and be competent about it. He can now be found in Purpelian inns, bars and brothels proving just what the combination of insane wealth and holding back from overindulging for over half a century can do to people.
