"I will not let this Republic that has stood for a thousand years be split in two."
―Supreme Chancellor Palpatine[src]

The Military Creation Act was an act that was proposed by the Galactic Senate that would have allowed the Galactic Republic to form an army to combat the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a group of star systems that had broken away from the Republic. The legislation was opposed by Senator Padmé Amidala and other senators who had formed the Loyalist Committee. As the threat of the Separatists grew more pronounced to the Senate, Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks proposed that Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine be given emergency powers to raise an army on his own. The motion passed, and the Republic adopted the clone troopers created on Kamino as the Grand Army of the Republic, leading to the Clone Wars and, eventually, the rise of the Galactic Empire.[1]
