The Secretary-General of the Sunshine Treaty Organization Pact is the head of the Sunshine Treaty Organization Pact and the Office of the Secretariat, the administrative body of STOP. The General-Secretary presides over all council meetings, creates an agenda, and help improve relations between signatories. The Secretary-General is also the spokesperson for STOP and the Secretary-General of the Polaris Organization of Sunshiner Allies (POSA), an affiliated organization tied to STOP.
During the first term of Johann Haupsmann, the role and powers of the Secretary-General grew. During the term, the Council voted for the creation of the Security Council and the Economy and Trade Council. The General-Secretary would assume to be the commander-in-chief of military operations involving more than 3 Sunshiner countries as well as oversee the Pact's economic growth. Although each council is led by their respective councilors and staff, the General-Secretary would have the highest power. During the Great Pacific War, the Secretary-General's involvement with military affairs grew.
The Secretary-General is elected every 2 months by signatories and a person can have up to 4 terms (consecutively or non-consecutively) or 8 months.
