The Comitia CuriataEdit
The Comitia Curiata is the oldest recorded Comitia in Rome. It dates from the time of the Kings; by the late Republic it had become largely ceremonial. The members of the Comitia Curiata are Nova Roma's Lictors (lictores curiati), convened and presided over by the Pontifex Maximus. The duties of the Comitia Curiata are to invest elected and appointed magistrates with Imperium, witness the appointment of the official priests and priestess of the Sacra Publica Romana, and ratify some adoptions, wills, and changes of status.
The Comitia CenturiataEdit
The comitia centuriata is one of three voting assemblies within Nova Roma. The main function of this assembly is to elect the year's two praetors, two consuls and one of the two censors. It is sometimes called to vote during the year on laws but this function is usually performed in the comitia populi tributa.
The Comitia Plebis TributaEdit
The Comitia Plebis Tributa has three basic functions, and is one of the legislative bodies of Nova Roma. Just as the Senate has its own separate email list to discuss issues brought before it, the CPT uses this list to discuss matters relevant to the Plebeian citizens and to the Res Publica. The first major function of the CPT is to consider all legislation proposed by the Tribunes. The Plebeians can then discuss these proposals before any vote is made upon them. A second major function of the CPT is to try legal cases solely involving members of the Plebeian order that do not involve permanent removal of citizenship. The third function of the CPT is to elect the Tribuni Plebis and the Aediles Plebis.
