The Governor of East Mainland is the titular chief executive of the Georgeland state of that name. The office has existed only since 2000, when the state of Mainland was divided into East and West. The Governor of East Mainland is directly elected for a four-year term; no Governor has yet served a full term, though Charlotte Lang served three and a half terms as Governor of Mainland in the 1990s and early 2000s.
The Governor has very little political power, and the position is mostly ceremonial. The Governor formally dissolves the state legislature and appoints the Chief Minister of East Mainland, as well as the state ministers. The Governor is usually patron of a number of organisations, notably the Returned Serviceman's League's state branch.
The incumbent Governor is The Hon. Hugh St. Clair, elected in March 2006.
