Prior to the Battle of Jakku, Sella attended a meeting of the Committee for Imperial Reallocation. Though Mothma's adviser Auxi Kray Korbin adjourned the meeting per Mothma's orders, he stayed behind to ask Mothma how her health was faring. Mothma replied that her arm was undergoing therapy exercises in the wake of the attack on Chandrila a few months earlier. Despite not being able to vote in the Senate, Sella promised to help her by ushering the committees along to fruition and to speak on her behalf before the coming election. Sella then bid Mothma farewell.
After Mothma's political rival Senator Tolwar Wartol leaked news of the Imperial presence on Jakku to the HoloNet, Sella contacted Mothma and told her to turn on the HoloNet News. Following the Battle of Jakku, Mothma appointed Sella as her new secondary adviser to replace the late Auxi, who had been assassinated by Wartol. Sella along with his fellow adviser Sinjir Rath Velus (a former Imperial loyalty officer) and Organa accompanied Mothma during the peace negotiations with Grand Vizier Mas Amedda. These peace negotiations led to the Galactic Concordance which formally ended hostilities between the New Republic and the Galactic Empire.
