The Pact Council, based in the Plenara on Absalom Station, is a representative council of delegates allocated proportionally by each Pact Worlds member's sentient population. The council directly votes on most issues. The Directorate, a body of five elected delegates with 2-year terms and the Director-General of the Stewards as an indefinite-termed sixth member, decides issues that the council is unable to rule upon due to legislative deadlock.
