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 statements on what course of action they perceive most beneficial. These may be advisory or decisive in nature, the latter mostly in regards to appointments. It is said by Polybian theorists to represent the element of oligarchy in the Roman political equilibrium.

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 or an ex-magistrate.

Present and former holders of higher magistracies are not necessarily senators but are entitled to participate in meetings of the Senate (the ius sententiae) by virtue of their office.

Tribunes of the plebs are entitled to attend the sessions of the Senate but don't have the ius sententiae unless they are senators.

The decisions appointing new senators

Apart from exceptional times when new senators may be appointed by a dictator, such an appointment is made by both censors.

The Censorial edicts on Senate appointments will provide most of these decisions.

The current senators are in order of senatorial rank :

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.
