PT:Magistraturas (Nova Roma)
Magistracies are the executive offices of Nova Roma. Central magistrates are the officials elected by the comitia or appointed by the senate responsible for the maintenance and conduct of the affairs of state. The office of governors is a magistracy effective only within the administration of a province. Nova Roman magistracies can be classified in several ways.
Magistraturas comuns de Nova Roma
The ordinary magistracies (magistratus ordinarii) are those which are filled every year by regular elections. They are the:
The praetores are the second highest executive magistrates and vice-presidents of the Nova Roman Republic and are considered as lower colleagues and deputies for the consules. There are two praetores in Nova Roma and their principal duty is to oversee the official fora and to administer the judicial sytem.

Censores are very respected magistrates with the highest auctoritas to safeguard the public morality and honour but third in rank after the consules and praetores, because they do not possess imperium, and have no power to convene either the senate or an assembly of the people. Their principal duty is to maintain the lists of citizens, equestrians and senators.
To stand for election as censor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 27 years old as of the effective date of office and must be assiduus.
All aediles are responsible for the organization of the ludi (public games), public religious events and State properties maintenance. Curule aediles specifically are also resonsible for the Aedilician Fund, specially for the Magna Mater Project, and the Macellum to report changes to the equites to the censors.
To stand for election as aedilis curulis, a potential candidate is required to be at least 21 years old as of the effective date of office and assiduus, i.e. a current Nova Roman taxpayer.

There are eight quaestores elected annually to serve as aides and financial administrators to the consules, praetores, and aediles. After eight quaestores have been elected, the newly elected senior magistrates are consulted and asked which of the new quaestores they wish to have assigned to them. The new consules make the final determination of this, publishing an edict assigning quaestores to senior magistrates. Saiba mais ...

A Nova Roman governor is a person appointed by the senate to oversee the daily handling of a province. The governor of the province can be variously termed, consul, proconsul, praetor, propraetor, or legatus pro praetore; the title depends on previous offices held by the governor.
The lex Vedia provincialis outlines the powers and duties of the provincial governors. They may also appoint legates and other provincial officials, but they must follow guidelines set out by the senate.
