"As a practical matter—as of this morning—the Senate no longer exists."
Mon Mothma[src]

The Sector Governance Decree was a proclamation passed by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, via his emergency powers, in the closing days of the Clone Wars.

History[edit | edit source]

It created the positions of Planetary Governor and Sector Moff.

The decree also gave twenty of the new Moffs responsibility for supporting the Republic's 20 Sector Armies. These Moffs' military territories, known as oversectors, matched the Sector Armies' sphere of operations.[2]

The Sector Governance Decree was the final impetus that led several senators to issue the "Petition of 2000". It was possibly considered in response to the scandal following the fall of Duro.
