15SHE WAS THE YOUNGEST SENATOR
Mon Mothma joined the Galactic Senate as the Senator of Chandrila in 27 BBY, while she was in her late teens. At the time, this made her one of the youngest beings to ever serve in the Senate, relatively. Leia Organa would also gain that distinction in her own
time when she joined the Imperial Senate.
The Separatist movement was already gaining momentum throughout the galaxy by the time Mon Mothma arrived. Before the Clone Wars broke out, she was appointed to the Senate Loyalist Committee.
Chancellor Palpatine had tasked this group with promoting the integrity of the Republic with political maneuvering towards the disillusioned systems. Mon Mothma’s political dispositions made her fast friends and allies with Senators Bail Organa of Alderaan and Padme Amidala of Naboo.
