Quorum of Twelve (TRS)
The Quorum of Twelve are a body similar to the U.S. Congress.
Each of the Twelve Colonies has one representative, which votes on and brings issues to be discussed.
- Tom Zarek of Sagittaron
- Marshal Baggot of Virgon
- Sarah Parker of Gemenon
- Gaius Baltar of Caprica (no longer held; elected to Vice President)
One of the primary issues of the new Quorum was the election of a Vice President; in a time when no Vice President is available during a presidential term, the Quorum gets to cast the votes towards a Vice President. Should there be a tie, the President is the one who casts the tie-breaking vote. (Colonial Day)
