Appoint

officer selection public refers

To designate, select, or assign authority to a position or an office.

Although sometimes used interchangeably, elect and appoint do not have the same meaning. Election refers to the selection of a public officer by the qualified voters of the community, and appointment refers to the selection of a public officer by one authorized by law to do so.
