Star Wars: A Wayward Eye
The Triumvirate was the cabinet formed by three prominent figures of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances to serve as a constitutional replacement for the now defunct Office of the Chief of State. After the coup led by the New Jedi Order and conspirators led by Kuati Senator Haydnat Treen and General Merratt Jaxton that overthrew Chief of State Natasi Daala, it was believed that the position of Chief of State was too powerful as shown by Daala’s draconian use of power whilst in office. So as to prevent this from happening again, acting Jedi Grand Master Saba Sebatyne, Treen and Jaxton decided to form a Triumvirate. Within the Triumvirate, it took a majority of votes to make decisions and set policies, thus no single individual could hold direct power over the Armed Forces or Intelligence Service.
