Chanciller blah blah who was running the imperial senate during the end of the old republic. First in the book Amadala identifies herself when the ship is in hyperspace to corusant. Now you decide which Amadala you want. The one that the slave called for his resignation is ellegal also, but this is not my point. The slave had no power to call for a vote. The chancillor should have fought this, but what I'm about to point out is that until Amadala's position as queen tern ran out, and she won the election as senator she would have only had power to run the planet, not to call for a vote to remove the chancellor. Senator Palpatine had the power, not her. This was illegal, and the chancillor should have fought this.
