Can a non-Ashkenazi or Sephardi Jew become a chief rabbi of Israel?

There are 2 positions to be Chief Rabbi of Israel dating over centuries with each having a Ashkenazi and Sephardi leader. The Chief Rabbi has supreme rabbi authority for Judaism in Israel but why is there a race requirement for this because not every Jew belong to one of these racial groups (although most are)

Israeli and Jewish law allow anyone, regardless of race, to become a full Jew and citizen of Israel. It just feels wrong for there to be racial requirement and to exclude groups from being a Chief Rabbi because of the colour of their skin as I myself am a Asian mixed race Jew.

P.S I don’t mean to send hate, please keep discussion civil.
