EDICTUM CENSORIS P. ANNÆI CONSTANTINI PLACIDI DE DESIGNATIONE PRINCIPIS SENATUS

Preamble

Inasmuch as the Senatus Consultum de Ratione Senatus X.C.5.g. stipulates the following:

“If the Princeps Senatus cannot be contacted either between the call to convene and the call to order during a formal meeting of the Senate in session, then the Censors shall appoint a Senator of their choice to act for the princeps senatus during that session only. That Senator should match exactly or as close as possible, in their opinion, the requirements under X.A. Should the Princeps Senatus subsequently declare himself/herself present before the call to close, the appointment of the acting Princeps Senatus shall be automatically terminated.”

in my capacity as the sole Censor of Nova Roma, I am issuing the following unofficial, non-corporate censorial edictum to be enacted as temporary measures, not to be held as binding under the corporate constitution of Nova Roma, Inc. or the regulations of the State of Maine:

I. In my capacity as the sole Censor of Nova Roma, I declare that the current Acting Princeps Senatus, L. Cornelius Sulla Felix, cannot be contacted, because he, as one of the organizers and leaders of a coup d’etat against the Nova Roman Republic, attacked the res publica, the rule of law and the legal order, and the Senate and People of Nova Roma, and by doing so, he removed himself from among the good standing citizens of Nova Roma and from the commonwealth of law and order of Nova Roma; and because, by every reasonable assessment of his character, his involvement in the proceedings of this honorable Council can be expected to be greatly subversive, disruptive and driven by malicious agenda of enforcing only his strictly personal goals on his own advantage, his involvement and contacting him is reasonably expected to provoke his vicious attacks against the law-abiding citizens of Nova Roma, and it would result in his obstructing the procedures of this lawful Senate to the detriment of Nova Roma and to the cause of restoring the res publica; thus I conclude, confirm and declare that contacting the current Acting Princeps Senatus, L. Cornelius Sulla Felix, and involving him into the business of this Order, is impossible, as he is not among the honorable citizens of Nova Roma, as it is dangerous and potentially very harmful, given his and his faction’s agenda; therefore it is against the interests of the Senate and People of Nova Roma, and against the spirit of our laws.

II. In the absence of the official, corporate Acting Princeps Senatus, I appoint Senatrix A. Tullia Scholastica to act as Princeps Senatus during our next session only.

III. This unofficial, non-corporate censorial Edictum shall not have any legal meaning or official status either under the laws of the State of Maine or within the context of Nova Roma, Inc. as a corporation chartered in the State of Maine, USA; however, it shall become an official Edictum of the Nova Roman Censor upon later confirmation by the lawful, legal state and corporate authorities of Nova Roma after order is restored to the Republic.

EDICTUM INTERREGIS IV DE SUFFRAGIIS FERENDIS

Preamble. As the perpetrators of the illegal takeover of Nova Roma, Cn. Iulius Caesar, L. Cornelius Sulla Felix and their coup senate still maintain control of the corporate infrastructure, all communication channels and the voting tools of Nova Roma, refuse to defer to lawfully established procedure, disallow any exercise of electoral process and willfully impede the election of magistrates, I, as interrex of the Nova Roman Republic, authorized by the NONCORPORATE SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE APPOINTMENT OF A NONCORPORATE INTERREX AND ON THE HOLDING OF NONCORPORATE ELECTIONS, establish the following temporary rules and method of voting in the comitia centuriata:

I. Voting shall be conducted by e-mail, and the e-mails containing the votes shall be sent to the following e-mail address, designated as the Cista:

cista2769 AT gmail DOT com

II. The voter’s e-mail must contain the full Roman name of the voter, and the name of the supported candidates (in any understandable form, but at least their initials). As normally under our laws, one voter can endors one, two, or zero candidates for the consulship.

III. The temporary diribitores, Sex. Lucilius Tutor and Q. Arrius Nauta, shall have access to the Cista e-mail box, and they shall count the votes, supervise the electoral porcess and report the results as required by the laws of Nova Roma in force.

IV. No other change is done to the regular electoral process as defined by the laws of Nova Roma in force.

V. After the results of the election have been announced, pontifex Cn. Cornelius Lentulus is authorized by this edict operating under the NONCORPORATE SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE APPOINTMENT OF A NONCORPORATE INTERREX AND ON THE HOLDING OF NONCORPORATE ELECTIONS, to convene the Comitia Curiata to invest the consules designati with imperium. This present edict also validates the Comitia Curiata session certified by pontifex Cn. Cornelius Lentulus which ceremonially invested Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander with imperium, adding the commentary that neither the imperium of the interrex needed, nor the that of consuls need Comitia Curiata approval when operating under a senatus consultum ultimum. As per the instructions of this present edictum, the lex curiata de imperio on the newly elected non-corporate consules will take effect immediately after the first lictor curiatus has witnessed the investment.

VI. This unofficial, Non-Corporate Edictum shall not have any legal meaning or official status either under the laws of the State of Maine or within the context of Nova Roma, Inc. as a corporation chartered in the State of Maine, USA; however, it shall become an official Edictum upon later confirmation by the lawful, legal state and corporate authorities of Nova Roma after order is restored to the Republic.

Cornelius Lentulus is hereby authorized to convene the Comitia Curiata, under my auspices, in place of the pontifex maximus.

II. The session of the Comitia Curiata starts at 8:00 AM, Rome Time, October 21, and shall be opened by Pontifex Cn. Cornelius Lentulus. The lictores curiati shall post their witness statements after the opening.

Tribunus militum consulari potestate


Edictum tribunicium III Lucilii on clarification of the validity of legal acts of January

I. There was a technical error and delay with the Comitia Curiata and therefore as Tribunus Militum Consulari Potestate I had to convene the senate session and issue edicts before the Comitia Curiata completed the conferment of imperium on the Consular Tribunes.

II. With this edictum I confirm and clarify that I acted under the authority of Senatus Consultum Ultimum through the Lex Cornelia Domitia de re publica constituenda VI.B, and regardless of the status of the lex de imperio of the Comitia Curiata, the senate session, the new senate decrees and my edicts in January were valid and are in full force. With this edictum I clarify and confirm all edicts, senate sessions and senatus consulta that we had so far this year as valid.

EDICTUM TRIBUNICIUM II Lucilii Claudii Annaei Lutatii on diplomatic relations with other Roman organizations

I. This edictum is an unanimous decision of all the four tribuni militum consulari potestate, and it determines the short term policy on the diplomatic relations of the Non-Corporate Nova Roma with three other Roman organizations that had ultimately originated in Nova Roma but left our Roman res publica and nation due to the atrocities and abuses committed by the Sulla-Caesar Faction between 2009 and 2015.

II. The Non-Corporate Free Nova Roma acknowledges, respects and recognizes the members of the “Res Publica Romana” Organization (est. 2011), “Roman Republic” Organization (est. 2016), and “Roma Aeterna” Organization (est. 2017) as brothers on the Roman path that we walk on together, and Nova Roma insists that these organizations (as well as all other benevolent Roman groups) must maintain mutual respect, friendship and good intentions towards each other.

III. The Non-corporate Nova Roma will enforce a policy on our communication fora that will require posters of our fora to be polite, respectful and positive towards all these aforementioned Roman organizations. The Non-corporate Nova Roma will defend our Roman brothers and sisters in whichever community they belong to. Insulting and disrespecting any of these Roman organizations will result in moderation and potential removal from our communication fora. We respectfully expect the aforementioned groups to apply the same policy regarding Nova Roma on their own communication fora.

IV. Our aim is to maintain peaceful coexistence, the mutual ban of insults between our organizations and cooperation for the greater good of the Roman revivalist movement. This might include help to each others’ organizations when in trouble: the content and nature of this help must be discussed each time the necessity arises. Future cooperation can include common projects, decided and discussed from idea to idea. The decision about common projects and cooperative actions shall be decided by the tribuni militum consulari potestate, unless the decision affects areas under the authority of the senate, the people or the priestly colleges, in which case the decision shall be made by the bodies affected.

V. For inter-organizational negotiations and discussion, the Non-corporate Nova Roma elects to conduct discussions on a third party platform, which shall be, for the time being, a Facebook chat group, and Nova Roma shall be represented by the tribuni militum consulari potestate who can delegate this role to their appointed representatives. The names of the current inter-organizational representatives, who are delegated to stand in for their appointing consular tribunes, are:

1. Consular Tribune Sex. Lucilius is represented by T. Domitius Daco as Proconsul,
2. Consular Tribune P. Annaeus is represented by Cn. Cornelius Lentulus as Praefectus Officio Tribunicio Praetorio and Quaestor,
3. Consular Tribune C. Claudius will represent himself,
4. Consular Tribune Q. Catulus will represent himself.

Date: a.d. IV Id. Quin. Sex. Lucilio C. Claudio P. Annaeo Q. Catulo tr. mil. cos. pot. ‡ XX ANRC et MMDCCLXX AUC (In the year of the Consular Tribunes Sex. Lucilius, C. Claudius, P. Annaeus and Q. Catulus, 12th July, 20 ANRC / 2770 AUC / 2017 AD)
