Senate Meets on Yavin With a New Vice-Chancellor Named

November 18, 2012

GNN Reporters Rakiko Lowtide and Daana Kira attended the latest Republic Senate meeting which was held on Yavin IV.

The Galactic Senate of the New Republic met on Yavin IV. Several guests were in attendance along with the Senators. Voting Senators included Shan Connell of Bengat, Sapphire Tafo of Tython, Ayeka Kel of Onderon with Dantooine voting by proxy. Guests included Master Marsh Solo of the NJO, King Downz of Bakura, Commander Cirden Fang who was accompanied by a dragon-like creature similar to the one that had caused trouble on Nar Shaddaa, Uvena Prime Representative Alister and Jedi from the KOJ. The Senate was presided over by Chancellor Tiffany Vandergraff.

Republic Senate meets on Yavin IV.

First to come up for a vote was the application of Uvena Prime to the Senate. Both King Downz and Senator Kel gave glowing recommendations to the world, because of the strong Jedi presence there, the will of the people, the presence of the Galactic Liberation Alliance, and the already established ties between that system and the Republic. Their inclusion into the Republic was passed and the Senate looked forward to meeting their Senator.

Next Chancellor Vandergraff announced that all hostilities had ceased with the Galactic Empire, and that the Empire had withdrawn from Republic space. Senator Tafo reported her talks with the Empire. They issued a declaration confirming they relinquished all claims to Tython but adding they reserved the right to pursue wanted people. The Chancellor stated that the Empire could only encroach on Republic space even if looking for criminals if they went through diplomatic channels first.

Senator Tafo concluding the meeting as interim Vice-Chancellor.

After that announcement, Chancellor Vandergraff then stated that she was suspending Chief Justice Aeon from his duties as the investigations proceeded against him where he’s being a suspected Sith. Senator Tafo pointed out that the Senate had passed legislation forbidding the Chancellor from doing such as thing as only impeachment could remove the Chief Justice from his post. Senator Ayeka Kel had to agree as she was the one that had drawn up the legislation, but wondered what they could do. Senator Tafo proposed that for now that another Judge could take over the Chief Justice’s caseload concerning the Sith Empire while the investigations took place.

The Chancellor was called away during this discussion. The Senator Connell then called for the election of an interim Vice-Chancellor. After a hesitation the Senator Tafo proposed herself and was voted by the Senators as the New Vice-Chancellor

Senator Connell then informed the Senate of a message from the System Alsakan made by their Senator, Cadogan Cort pulling that world out of the Republic. Cort stated they had been denied their basic right to vote in the Senate, a power Chief Justice Aeon stated they didn’t have because they hadn’t met the full eligibility of the inclusion of Alsakan into the Republic.

Active Vice-Chancellor Tafo then continued the meeting by welcoming Uvena Prime into the Republic and denying the Chancellor the proclamation of suspending the Chief Justice. After a discussion in the Senate, the matter of the a artifact mining treaty with the Tetan Empire meet opposition which couldn’t be answered was reported at the next meeting. Same for the Formation of the Galactic Alliance which was seen to complicated to be discussed so late.

The Vice Chancellor, then pushed a bill to organise proxy votes, allowing Senator to delegate punctually part of their mandates when they can’t attend a meeting. The bill passed even if Senator Connell regretted the low current attendance. Vice Chancellor Tafo pointed out the Senator can propose another organisation of the proxy votes next time if they had a better one.

The meeting then formally stopped, discussions continued in the house on the becoming of the Republic, it’s strength and weakness and the values they might have, using Senator Kel’s Galactic Alliance as basis.

    Dear Senators, when will you start to do things for your people rather than talk about yourselves? As for allowing this Hutt puppet into the Vice Chancellor position I would like to congratulate you all on officially ending the New Republic as we know it.

    I am sure your people will thank you in the future.

      What twaddle…

      There are plenty of legitimate reasons to be concerned with the Republic’s Senate, without having to fabricate new ones.

    So in light of the realization that your legislation had a major point of failure, the best thing your collective brains could come up with was… shuffle around the major national security threat’s duties?

    Really?

    Seriously?

    Good luck, Uvena Prime. You’re going to need it.

    (Anyone else notice that Downz is embracing his hereditary monarchical role much more enthusiastically than his civil service role? His senatorial attendance as king is rivaling his attendance as chancellor.)

    They must have been handing out spice at the door. This is the only reason that makes sense for this.

    As you may aready know i was not a guest at the senate meeting. I am one of the many jedi Adivsor there that was sent by my council in the new jedi order.

      Sorry for the mix-up, I was thinking guest as meaning someone who wasn’t a senator. I’ll keep that in mind, but yes you have been present at every meeting and participated in some. Thanks for the correction.

    Whathekriff Tafo is vice chancellor? Mind you this is the same person who brought sith beasts into Tython for “amusement,” shot the hero of coruscant and works for the hutts!

    Unbelievable!

      I think my article on the matter was clear that a Colonel from the Resistance Movement on Tython shot the Coruscant Hero, not the Senator ( https://galacticnewssl.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/chaos-in-tython/ ). I don’t care that allegations are made against politicians, but established facts shouldn’t be changed to make a case.

      Not sure what credible evidence there is that the Senator works for the Hutts, if there is we’d be glad to hear it.

      And as for the beast, is it it’s fault that it exists? Shouldn’t it have a home? Anyways these are some of the questions that I’ll be covering in an upcoming documentary “Terentatek: The Lost Creature”.

    Tafo as Vice Chancellor? At least she can’t vote in the Senate meetings. Should she become the Supreme Chancellor, I’ll be scared for all of us citizens in the Republic…

    Absolutely ridiculous. Why in the world is the Senate screwing us over like this?
