The Supreme Chancellor,[1] also known as the High Chancellor,[5] was the head of state of the Galactic Republic. He or she was elected by and from the members of the Galactic Senate.[1] The office was abolished when Chancellor Sheev Palpatine transformed the Republic into a Galactic Empire and bestowed upon himself the title of Galactic Emperor.[2]

The Chancellor's office was located in the Senate District's executive building opposite the Senate Rotunda.
