Doctor Ruth Charet was one of a number of politicians and academics who vyed for the post of president of the Unified Earth Government following the cessation of war against the Covenant and amidst the official transition back to civilian governance. Doctor Charet was installed as president on January 8, 2553. In her inaugural speech she emphasized that now that the war, humanity could finally breathe again. And though the conflict's cost in lives had been enormous, she reminded everyone that freedom never comes cheaply and that now they could rebuild. Doctor Charet additionally promised that while the UEG would strive for a peaceful coexistence alongside alien species, the human race would never again allow itself to be the victim of aggression. She claimed that moment to mark the start of humankind's reclaimation of its rightful place in the universe. On January 26 President Charet held a reception. Those invited included Admiral Margaret Parangosky and David Agnoli, Minister for the Colonies. Within a matter of days following this the president unveiled her new cabinet and Minister Agnoli was among the casualties, having been replaced in his role by Akeyo Oduya.
By October of 2556, President Charet and other UEG bureaucrats were embroiled in a political imbroglio surrounding the alliance with the Swords of Sanghelios. Charet had to work against not only the majority of the rest of the UEG in this regard, but also had to deal with meddling from ONI that risked the fragile peace.
