The Presidents of the Federal Council
The Federal Provinces take turns every six months, in alphabetical order, in taking the chairmanship of the Federal Council. The chairperson, titled President, is the Member ranking first on the list of Members delegated by the Province currently in the chair.
The Federal Council elects from among its Members two deputies, who bear the title of Vice-President, and at least two secretaries and two whips. The President and the two Vice-Presidents are collectively referred to as the Presidium.
