- "The charter of Chancellor maintains the emergency powers granted by Palpatine, and they can persist no longer. They are a poison to democracy. They undercut my role."
- ―Mon Mothma
The charter of Chancellor was the document that empowered the chancellor of the New Republic, the position that served as the leader of the Galactic Senate. The charter gave the chancellery the same emergency powers once granted to Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine of the Galactic Republic, which he used to form the Galactic Empire. Mon Mothma, however, intended to eliminate those powers when she was elected as the first chancellor of the New Republic.
