We are hoping to form an alliance in the Senate to stop the Chancellor from further subverting the constitution.—Mom Mothma

The Delegation of 2000 was an unofficial group of Senators that were part of the Loyalist Committee and other political figures that remained loyal to the Galactic Republic.

HistoryEdit

The Delegation of 2000 was formed in 19 BBY after Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine's appointed some regional governors, which undermined the role of the Galactic Senate. Initially established by Bail Prestor Organa and Mon Mothma, the Delegates were concerned and felt uneasy about the Chancellor's continued usage of emergency powers. Since the Clone Wars was almost over, the Chancellor was nearing their end—especially the formation of the new office of moff. Many of the Delegates rightly feared for the future of democracy in the Republic, Their goal was to suspend the decree sector control and re-opening of peace negotiations with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Padmé Amidala, who had also joined the Delegation, became a spokesman and presented the Petition of 2000 to the Chancellor. Palpatine assured the Senators a quick return to democracy once the Clone Wars came to an end, but he realized he had lost their confidence.

After the fall of Galactic Republic and the founding of the first Galactic Empire, Palpatine exploited the petition as an excuse to arrest many of those who had signed or supported the petition was declared a public enemy. Consequently, many delegates were arrested by the new Imperial Intelligence and secretly executed by the order of Emperor Palpatine. However, after the Subjugation of Kashyyyk, half the Delegation withdrew their signatures from the Petition, but many of them would still quietly oppose Palpatine's rule, and it was they who, in the wake of the Ghorman Massacre, were responsible for the eventual formation of the Rebel Alliance.
