Benjámin Takács was the eighth President of Granzery. He remains the longest serving Granzerian president, and second longest serving Granzerian head of state (excluding monarchs) after communist-era dictator Sergei Acéloz. He resigned in 1998 at the age of 70 after a minor heart attack left him hospitalised for two weeks. Despite his health greatly improving afterwards, he claimed that he would not return to politics due to health concerns regarding the stress involved with the office of President.
