The Ministry for the Colonies

The Ministry for the Colonies, or simply the Colonial Office is the main government agency charged with the administration of the different colonies and overseas territories of the Kingdom of Jeltronia. Prior to May 08, 2017, the Colonial Office was under the Minister for the Home Office. Following changes made by His Majesty, Jotham II, the Colonial Office was split from the Home Office and elevated to a full Ministry in its own right.

The Ministry directly controls colonies that have no colonial charter, or those which do not enjoy autonomy. Their administrators depend upon policies and directives that are crafted by the Colonial Office itself, as these colonies do not have their own colonial legislatures. While some administrators are granted vast discretionary powers, they ultimately report to the Colonial Office and to the House of Representatives. Colonies that have their own charters, (which would also mean having their own legislatures} enjoy varying levels of autonomy. The Ministry would then just exercise supervisory functions over their administrators.

The Ministry is also responsible for screening appointees to colonial positions; reviewing policies and programs of the different colonies; recommending bills to the House of Representatives and the King and conducting announced and unannounced inspection of the different colonies.
