Section 523A was a procedural regulation of the Galactic Republic's bureaucracy. During a session of the Galactic Senate[1] in 32 BBY,[2] Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum reluctantly cited Section 523A in support of Trade Federation Senator Lott Dod's request that a commission be sent to Naboo to investigate Queen Amidala's claim that the Federation's droid armies had invaded the planet. Despite Valorum's reluctance[1]—in fact, he felt that procedural regulations were a plague to the Republic[3] and only cited the regulation after receiving advice from his Vice Chair Mas Amedda and Staff Aide Sei Taria—Amidala called a Vote of No Confidence in his leadership, and he was ultimately ousted from his position.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Section 523A is mentioned by Chancellor Valorum in both the script of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace,[5] and in its novelization,[1] but not in the film itself.[4]
