Powers[edit | edit source]
The Emperor has no institutional, political, military, or judical limits. The Constitution protects his authority and does not strip it. The Emperor is practically above the law. Since there are no legal limits or constitutional guarantees, subjects in an absolutionist society have no protected rights; without an established and supreme law to guarantee protections and liberties, rights are given - and may be taken away - at the will of the Emperor.
The Emperor is assisted by the Prime Minister, his leading advisor and chief minister, appointed and dismissed by the Monarchy. The Emperor also appoints and dismisses members and officials of the government and commissions. The Imperial Parilament is the supreme legislative body, but is called and dissolved by the Emperor or the Monarchy. All laws are proposed and passed in his name. The Emperor approves or may reject these laws. The Emperor appoints half of the members of the State Council of Russia, appoints and fires committees, and calls or dissolves Parliament at will.
