The President of the National House of Chiefs, Togbe Afede XIV, is also an ex-officio a member of the Council.

Currently, there is no living former Chief Justice, thus the president was unable to propose a name for the approval of Parliament.

The Council of State is mandated to advise the President in the performance of his functions.
