Nute Gunray during his time as Trade Federation Minister in the Galactic Senate.

Trade Federation Minister was a position within the Trade Federation, and was apparently equivalent to Senator. Nute Gunray served as the Trade Federation Minister during the Stark Hyperspace War. After Gunray's ascension to Viceroy at the end of the conflict, his place was taken by Lott Dod. Dod still held this position after the beginning of the Clone Wars.
