The Chancellor of the Garudan People's Council (Garudan: Kanzler des Garudish Folksrats) is the presiding officer of the Garudan Folksrat. The office was established in 1932 by Article I, Section 2 of the Garudan Constitution of 1931, which states in part, "The People's Council shall choose their Chancellor..."

The Constitution does not explicitly require that the Chancellor be an elected Folksrat Representative, though every Chancellor so far has been an elected Member of the Council.

The Chancellor is second in the Garudan presidential line of succession, after the Vice President and ahead of the Chancellor of the Stātenrat. The Chancellor of the People's Council is a leadership position and the office-holder actively works to set the government's legislative agenda. The Chancellor usually does not personally preside over debates, instead delegating the duty to members of the Council from the ruling party. The Chancellor usually does not participate in debate and rarely votes.

Aside from duties relating to heading the Council and the ruling political party, the Chancellor also performs administrative and procedural functions, and represents his or her electoral district.
