Senatus consultum ultimum on the Lex Cornelia de classibus et ordine equestri
SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE LEX CORNELIA DE CLASSIBUS ET ORDINE EQUESTRI
I. The Lex Cornelia de classibus et ordine equestri is suspended.
II. Pending any revision of the Lex Cornelia de classibus et ordine equestri, due to perceived issues with its wording, the number of centuries allocated to the Ordo Equester members shall remain at one for the duration of this Senatus consultum ultimum.
III. The membership of the Ordo Equester held by Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus (citizen # 7694), and his allocation to the Ordo Equester century, as at section II above, is unaffected by this Senatus consultum ultimum, subject to that citizen not resigning or being banished and also subject to that citizen retaining a balance of at least 220 census points. Should that citizen suffer a reduction in census points that results in his total being less than 220 census points, his removal from the Ordo is deemed automatic, and the Censors shall upon such reduction reflect this change in the Album Civium and note the reason in the Censorial record for that citizen. Citizen 7694 shall be the only member of the century at section II above.
IV. Any citizens subsequently admitted to the Ordo Equester by the Censors shall not be allocated to the century at section II above but shall be placed in a century appropriate to their class in the normal manner for citizen century allocation, as per the Senatus Consultum Ultimum on Electoral Process to be used in the Comitia Centuriata.
V. Apart from citizen 7694, no other citizen appointed to the Ordo Equester shall enjoy any special century placement or enjoy any other electoral advantage until such a revision of the Lex Cornelia de classibus et ordine equestri is enacted and such special century placement and electoral advantage being granted in such a revision.
VI. Any amending enactment of the Lex Cornelia de classibus et ordine equestri shall be subject to the provisions of the Senatus consultum ultimum on the process for proposed legislation to be put before comitia
VII. 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 VII.A of this Senatus consultum ultimum.
VIII. This Senatus consultum ultimum shall terminate on the 31st December 2022, unless it shall be terminated earlier under the process described at section VII.A of this Senatus consultum ultimum
