The Senate of Nova Roma is a council where a select few citizens, mostly former or current magistrates, can discuss the state of the Republic and issue Senatus consultum as directives. They can also issue the Senatus consultum ultimum. These are virtually all decisive in nature, the latter sometimes in regards to appointments. It is said by Polybian theorists to represent the element of oligarchy in the Roman political equilibrium.

Senators (album senatorium)

The senators and their status

Current consuls, praetors, censors and appointed senators are members of the Nova Roman Senate. Senators are appointed by the censors. The list of senators is regularly revised by the censors, but senators removed either by nota or under the terms of the lex Popillia senatoria are removed from the list until the nota is removed and they are returned to the Senate by the Censors as a senator.

Present holders of higher magistracies who are not senators are entitled to attend and post during meetings of the Senate (the ius sententiae) by virtue of their office. Such non-senator holders of these offices may not vote in the Senate.

Tribunes of the plebs are entitled to attend the sessions of the Senate but not vote, unless they are also a senator.

The decisions appointing new senators or removing existing senators

Such appointments or removals are made by both censors after confirmation by vote of the Senate on any of their proposed changes.

The current album senatorium

The current senators are in order of senatorial rank :

The ius sententiae dicendae

Organization of the senatorial work

The Senate takes its senatus consulta in plenary sessions. In order to prepare them, it may work in committees. They are ordinarily several sessions a year. Nevertheless, the sessions depend on their convocation by a presiding magistrate.
