Introduction

Ius edicendi, the right to issue edicta (edicts) is enshrined in the Nova Roma constitution, defined as "the executive resolutions of the officers of the corporation" as per I.C. in the Constitutional Basis.

Edicta form part of the hierarchy of legal authority and legislation within Nova Roma. The constitution is the highest legal authority and takes precedence over all other legislation and any edicta. Below senatus consulta ultima, a legally appointed Dictator’s edicta takes precedence. After all other leges, decreta and normal senatus consulta, various magisterial edicta are permitted in order of office precedence as listed in IV.A. of the constitution.

For edicts to take effect, they must be published to the Forum Romanum, the official list in accordance with Lex Vedia de ratione edictorum. They will then be published here for record keeping. Edicts are also subject to ius intercessionis, intercessio (intercession; a veto) by magistrates of higher authority or from a Tribunus Plebis.

Edicta of the Magistratus Extraordinarii

The magistratus extraordinarii are those offices that are by exception, not part of the central elected government of Nova Roma. Offices include Dictator, Promagistratus (Promagistrate), and special commissioners. A typical promagistratus that can issue edicta are governors. Special commissioners include offices such as the praefectus rei publicae administrandae (chief executive officer) and the curator rei informaticae (chief information officer).

Due to the importance of these offices, and in some cases an absence of term limits, the edicta of the magistratus extraordinarii can be enduring. The edicta of these magistrates can last multiple years, remaining valid, so long as the issuing incumbent remains in the authorized office. Governors' edicta remain valid for the duration of their appointment, in accordance with the Lex Arminia de ministris provincialibus.

As per IV.B.1 of the constitution, a dictator's "...edicta, or the parts of an edictum that are not in conflict with a lex, the day-to-day management, operational actions and decisions implemented by the dictator for Nova Roma that do not create new law conflicting with laws of higher legal precedence, will not become reversed or annulled automatically after the tenure of the dictatura, only the changes to the legal system of Nova Roma which would be in conflict with existing leges, Senatus consulta or decreta".

The edicta of the magistratus extraordinarii are listed by office below:

A governor's edicta are often recorded in a provincial tabularium, or in some cases listed in the praetorium as provincial legislation.


Edicta of the Magistratus Ordinarii

The magistratus ordinarii are defined in IV.A. of the constitution. According to the Lex Arminia de ratione edictorum the edicts of these standard magistrates only last as long as their term in office.

The edicta of the magistratus ordinarii are listed by year below:

EDICTUM PRAETORIUM DE COMITIIS CENTURIATIS CONVOCANDIS ET DE SUFFRAGIIS FERENDIS


I. I hereby convene and I summon a Non-Corporate Session of the Comitia Centuriata to gather in the Free Forum of Nova Roma (the "Saving Nova Roma" mailing list) in order to vote on proposed legislations, the rogatio Aurelia de legionibus and the rogatio Aurelia de familiis gladiatoriis et ludis gladiatoriis.

The Contio begins now immediately 14:30 PM Rome Time today, a.d. VIII Kal. Ian. C. Claudio Quadrato et T. Domitio Dracone coss. (25th December 2018).

II.. The auspices were taken by Pontifex Cn. Cornelius Lentulus authorized by Augur C. Claudius Quadratus, and were favorable.

III. Authorized by the consular edict of consuls C. Claudius and T. Domitius, the time between this convening of the Comitia and the start of voting is hereby shortened from the period required by the lex Cornelia de ratione comitiorum centuriatorum, because of the urgency due to the end of the year and pressure from partner organizations to regulate this aspect of our activities. Under the accelerated procedure, contio-type debates are allowed until even the very last day of the voting session. The schedule for this Non-Corporate Session of the Comitia Centuriata:

Contio will begin at 14:30 PM Rome Time on 25 December 2018 Contio will end at 24:00 PM Rome Time on 31 December 2018 Voting will begin at 15:00 PM Rome Time on 24 December 2018 Voting will end at 24:00 PM Rome Time on 31 December 2018

IV. Authorized by the NON-CORPORATE SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE CONTINUED OPERATION OF THE RES PUBLICA DURING THE CRISIS, the voting laws are temporarily changed as follows:

V.A. As the perpetrators of the illegal dictatorship and the so-called “corporate” senate still maintain control of the corporate infrastructure, communication channels and the normal voting tools of Nova Roma, refuse to defer to lawfully established procedure, disallow any exercise of electoral process and willfully impede legislation, voting shall be conducted by e-mail. The e-mails containing the votes shall be sent to the following e-mail address, designated as the Cista:

cista2771@gmail.com

V.B. The voter's e-mail must contain the full Roman name of the voter and the votes on the rogationes (law proposals), which can be: V.B.1. uti rogas, abbreviated as UR or VR (yes), V.B.2. antiquo, abbrevated as A (no), V.B.3. abstineo, abbreviated as ABS (abstain).

Voters must vote on TWO law proposals and they must specify which vote refers to which proposal.

VI. The diribitores appointed by consul C. Claudius shall conduct the technical organization of the voting process, including the vote counting.

VII. The text of the proposals will be sent as a separate announcement.

From here, reverse chronological order is followed:'



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.

Datum sub mano mea, hodie Kal. Oct. 2769 AUC (October 1st, 2016).

Publius Annæus Constantinus Placidus Censor


EDICTUM INTERREGIS I DE COMITIIS CENTURIATIS CONVOCANDIS

IV. Authorized by the NONCORPORATE SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE APPOINTMENT OF A NONCORPORATE INTERREX AND ON THE HOLDING OF NONCORPORATE ELECTIONS, the voting will be conducted by e-mails, by a method specified on the opening day of the voting period.

V. Authorized by the NONCORPORATE SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE APPOINTMENT OF A NONCORPORATE INTERREX AND ON THE HOLDING OF NONCORPORATE ELECTIONS, the time between this convening of the Comitia and the start of voting is hereby shortened from the period required by the lex Cornelia de ratione comitiorum centuriatorum, because the favorable auspices were obtained explicitly for 10th October, and there is urgency not to delay this elections for more weeks.

VI. This unofficial, Non-Corporate Session of the Comitia Centuriata 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 Session of the Nova Roman Comitia Centuriata upon later confirmation by the lawful, legal state and corporate authorities of Nova Roma after order is restored to the Republic.

This mailing list shall be the main community forum of the Free Nova Roma itself, and of the “Free Nova Roma Movement” (or “Saving Nova Roma Movement”, there is no official name).

III. The priority focus of the “Saving Nova Roma” mailing list shall be to discuss our problems caused by Caesar and Sulla and their harmful faction, our ideas and action plans about how to prevent Sulla and Caesar from doing more harm, and how to present our ideas better on the communication forums of Nova Roma, and how to remove these offenders, Sulla and Caesar from any position where they would continue causing more harm to Nova Roma.

IV. It is not permitted to discuss preferences for, or recruit for, other organizations and the ideas of giving up and leaving Nova Roma.

V. It is not permitted to use harsh, insulting or hurtful language against other list members, or to conduct personal quarrels on the mailing list.

VI. A violation of these rules shall result in being put on moderation for an interval determined by the list moderators, or, in irreconcilable cases, in removal from the mailing list. The final judge for appeals on this forum shall be the magistracy with the highest imperium present on this forum.

Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander INTERREX


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.

Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander INTERREX


EDICTUM INTERREGIS V DE COMITIIS CURIATIS CONVOCANDIS

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

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’état 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, and 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.

Datum sub manu mea, hodie pridie Kalendas Decembris Cn. Lentulo Alexandro T. Domitio Dracone cos. MMDCCLXIX a.u.c. (November 30th, 2016)

Publius Annæus Constantinus Placidus Censor
