The politician who held this government position.

master, unique, disambiguating
Basic title /government/government_position_held/basic_title /government/government_office_category

The basic title or role of the office, without the name of the jurisdiction or other qualification. E.g., "Prime Minister" rather than "Prime Minister of Canada" or "Senator" rather than "U. S. Senator".

master, unique, disambiguating
Office, position, or title /government/government_position_held/office_position_or_title /government/government_office_or_title

The name of the office (e.g., "Prime Minister of Canada") or the title of the position (e.g., U.S. Senator). Enter the full name of the position, and include office's jurisdiction (e.g., "Mayor of Queensborough" rather than just "Mayor"); this will prevent us from having thousands of different topics for "Mayor", each with a different jurisdiction.

master, unique, disambiguating
Governmental body (if position is part of one) /government/government_position_held/governmental_body /government/governmental_body

If the position held is part of a body of some kind, such as a legislature, enter that here. Otherwise, leave blank.

master, unique, disambiguating
Jurisdiction of office /government/government_position_held/jurisdiction_of_office /government/governmental_jurisdiction

Enter the area over which the office or position has jurisdiction; for national offices, this should be the country; for local offices, the city or municipality; etc.

master, unique, disambiguating
Legislative sessions /government/government_position_held/legislative_sessions /government/legislative_session

For members of legislative bodies ONLY, enter the sessions for which they held this office. Enter consecutive sessions only; non-consecutive sessions should be captured in separate instances.

District represented (if position is district-related) /government/government_position_held/district_represented /government/political_district

Enter a value if the position is related to a district, precinct, constituency, riding, etc. (e.g., the California 8th district). This is not the same as the jurisdiction of the office held; do NOT, for example, enter the name of the city if you are filling out information for a mayor.

master, unique, disambiguating
Appointed By (if Position is Appointed) /government/government_position_held/appointed_by /government/political_appointer

For appointees only, enter the name of the person or body that appointed them to this position; otherwise, leave blank.
