When people have the power to choose, they choose wrong.
~ Chief Elder

The Chief Elder is the leader of The Community in the book and movie The Giver.  In Jonas' time, she is a woman (played by Meryl Streep) and is the story's main antagonist.  At the December Ceremony, she gives speeches and assigns jobs to eleven-year-olds (referred to as "Elevens").

She believes that an authoritarian utopian society is the solution to pain and suffering and will go to extreme lengths to maintain such a society, even the execution of children by lethal injection (known as "release").
