Galactic Senate meeting in Bengat

October 21, 2012

Interviewing the Minister Tae Aichi, Reporters of Galactic News learned the Senate was about to meet in Bengat then they were invited.

The Galactic Senate met in Bengat. Since a few time the locations and times of the Senate of the New Republic meeting are unpublished, limiting de facto the right of coverage by the media. Furthermore, often when the meeting coordinates are discovered, the media are barred for no reason said, and sometimes invited after several hours waiting to listen current affairs discussions while the Empire controls some of their worlds. It might leave to the citizens the image of a Republic not caring on the war, if some of the dignitaries didn’t actually answer individually to the media’s questions when asked.

Senate Meeting

Anyway, the minister Tae Aichi, whom the Chancellor would have granted the ability to Moderate the Senate discussions, informed and invited the press to attend at this meeting, provided the content of the first discussion on the state of the military, remained undisclosed.

The next topic was an proposed amendment to the constitution, precise the jurisdiction levels and creating a supreme court with three judges, to remplace the current tasks of the chief justice, named and revocable anytime by the chancellor. The text was written up by Chief Justice Aeon, and introduced by the Senator Ayeka Kel from Onderon, which said this bill would laying down an already existing balance of powers in the Republic. The Senator Nomi Drewmoore from Dantooine wondered on the absence of Jedi tribunal, for instance to judge captured Sith, she was answered the Jedi should be normal citizens. Senator Heather Le’verve from Velmor outlined the constitution only gave a “mere guideline” and recalled the argument on the designation of a jury during Former Senator Algoma’s trial in Susevfi 4, this point not being addressed by the bill. After a short discussion, the senators agreed to postpone the vote waiting the bill define what is a jury.

The following discussion was about a treaty, negotiated by the minister Tae Aichi and the Tetan Empress Xera Keto. The agreement would trade carbonite lab against mining rights. The text was also postponed waiting some technical amendment.


Tae Aichi then introduced a non announced the candidacy of Cadogan Cort from the planet Alsakan for the Galactic Senate. In his recorded message, he recalled his monarchy was a founding member of the old republic, and presented the advantage of the location of his world. The Senator Shan Connell from Bengat said she was in favour, Senator Ayeka Kel said Mr Cort was a gentleman and was also in favour, however, Senator Heather Le’verve said she would vote against, not having meet him, and Tae Aichi replied she wont call for a vote for this reason. It’s unclear, also if a formal application was filled.

The Senator Le’verve, then rose a point on the situation in Tython, where Jedi are fighting to prevent the planet fall completely to the Empire, while the Senate does nothing at her great disappointment. The minister Tae Aichi recalled the Empire refused to talk her on this case and suggested another diplomat was sent. She also suspected another Empire was involved. As all the current resources are monopolized to Coruscant, The Senators decided to raise war bonds to help Tython, the amount was not said and the usage will have to be detailed. The Senator Kel assured Tython had little strategic value, being worth only because it had citizens. The Senator Connell wanted forward to the Senator Sapphire Tafo of Tython, locked on her planet, the senators always think about her.

On the insistance of Senator Le’verve, the senate addressed a message of peace to the empire, pronounced by Tae Aichi “The Republic is willing to begin peace talks to start an end to the tythonian conflict. Diplomats from the imperial forces on the planet are to contact myself in regards to answering the call for talks.”

    It was enjoyable having both CNN and GNN at the meeting. I hold out hope for Mister Cort, Empress Keto, and the Chief justice, and in time I am sure that all three pieces of legislation will be ratified and that we may welcome the proud planet of Alsakan into our Family, as well as opening trade rights with the Tetans.

    The Chancellor will ruin the New Republic, this first wave of attacks are evidence to back it up.

    I’m pretty sure that’s an overstatement. My only beef is … where the hell are the chairmen? Does the republic need to start an investigation to find the chancellor and vice chancellor? Shouldn’t there be a revote or something if you can’t attend your own meetings?

      The Vice Chancellor was indisposed, and the Chancellor …, well I was informed by a fast courier that I needed to moderate the meeting. And the only thing voted on, war bonds, is now a moot issue. So really, no re-vote needs to be taken on any level. And I assure you, I know the chancellor’s location, that isn’t a mystery, it also isn’t something that I’ll reveal publicly. Any further details will need to come directly from the office of the Chancellor unless she authorizes me to disclose what happened to prevent her arrival.

    Well, I’m not sure the media grasps the concept of a war. So let me explain, in a war, if you find out there is a gathering of people heading the other side, the idea thing to do is to bomb it, from orbit if possible. Thusly the senators are not going to set a sign saying were they are, after all sith have acess to media as well. I assumed this was common sense coming into play.

    Ive had personal contact with the Chancellor (albeit over a really secure neural net channel), trust me that the chancellor is still out there somewhere doing things for the republic even though she was disposed at the meetings
