The Minister of Justice was a position in the New Republic government. The minister was one of the key members of the General Ministry and the various ruling councils, always being the fourth most powerful member, under the Chief of State, Minister of State, and Supreme Commander. Should the Minister of State have to take over for a Chief of State, the minister of justice would assume the duties associated with the Minister of State.
