Ketis Erim (Faźul: Erim Ketis, [erim ketis]; born April 19 1978) is the 29th and current President of Faźulavaz. Born in Creniz, Erim is a graduate of Dzeyim College, Prels, where she studied Economics and Terminian. She became a member of the Moderate Party, becoming active in local politics after earning her degree, and was first elected to the Ośaves in 2003 at the age of 25, representing the constituency of East Prels; two years later she was promoted to the Shadow Cabinet. Considered a rising star within the party, she later served in the cabinets of Chancellors Preva Śelz and Iśa Preśeća.

After President Nels Denret stepped down in 2013, the Moderates nominated long-standing minister and party front-bencher Nätä Gyodik as their Presidential Candidate; however, Gyodik unexpectedly withdrew months into the campaign after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The party narrowly voted for Erim to take the replacement nomination, but was considered unlikely to win, trailing behind opposing Freedom & Justice candidate Vurgy Csalcs. Her unexpected victory, by a popular vote of 53.1%, was claimed by many to be the biggest election upset in Faźul history.

As President, Erim has fought for improved rights for ethnic minorities both in Faźulavaz and abroad. Under her premiership, Faźulavaz joined the Northern Union and MARG. She gained widespread appraisal from across the political spectrum for her actions during the ongoing Kaisen Refugee Crisis; in addition, efforts were made to reduce social stratification in both rural and urban areas. She has been criticised however for her perceived inaction on environmental issues - in particular the Faźuli fishing industry, which has been deemed unsustainable by the International Environmental Union.
