A position created to check the potentially unlimited power of the Corporate Sector Authority's ExO, the Prex is a member of the Direx Board. Originally the Prex was randomly selected from the board members. The current charter provides for the election of the Prex by the shareholders, when the Direx board is elected. This individual is empowered to officiate over Direx meetings. It is the Prex that recognizes motions, tallies votes, and performs many of the other mundane tasks necessary to conduct a Direx meeting. In addition to these minor powers, the Prex is granted supervisory authority over the Auditor General and his agents. Through the OOAG, the Prex is able to monitor the inner workings of the Authority to ensure that the ExO and other executives don't overstep their Direx-approved bounds.
