SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE APPOINTMENT OF THE PRINCEPS SENATUS
I. This Senatus consultum ultimum is issued by the Senate under the authority granted to it under section V.E of the Constitution of Nova Roma and under the constitutional authority of the Senate as the supreme policy-making authority for Nova Roma.
II. Given that Decius Iunius Palladius Invictus (citizen # 17), senator of Nova Roma and Princeps senatus, is on a prolonged period of leave, the Senate honorably removes him from the position of Princeps senatus and thanks him for his service to the Senate of Nova Roma.
III. The Senate mindful of the requirements of section X.A of the Senatus consultum de ratione senatus MMDCCLXV appoints Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix (citizen # 8) as Princeps senatus and also recognizes his invaluable contributions to the maintenance of the Nova Roman Senate, and thus to the well being of Nova Roma, during his period of service as Acting Princeps senatus. The term of office stipulated for the Princeps senatus in the Senatus consultum de ratione senatus MMDCCLXV shall commence upon the date of the enactment of this Senatus consultum ultimum.
IV. Upon enactment of this Senatus consultum ultimum:
A. The only lawful method of subsequently superseding, amending or repealing this Senatus consultum ultimum must be by way of a Senatus consultum ultimum, that must achieve an extraordinary majority before it can be enacted. Any other method or attempt shall be illegal and forbidden. The Princeps senatus may at his/her discretion replace the requirement above for an extraordinary majority with a requirement for a special majority, or a simple majority.
B. No other Senatus consultum ultimum shall be enacted where the proposed content of which conflicts, negates, overrides, limits or otherwise affects in a negative manner the contents and/or purposes of all or any part of this Senatus consultum ultimum, whether directly or indirectly other than by the method at specified at section IV.A of this Senatus consultum ultimum.
