68 TIIE PUBLIC LAW OF FINLAND.

instance, by the supreme tribunal (the Justice
Department of the Senate).

As soon as the Diet is assembled, the
mandates of the members elected are verified and
seen to be in the prescribed form by a high
public officer nominated by the Emperor, but
the orders have the right of deciding for
themselves as to the validity of the elections.

The members of the order of nobility have to
establish their right to sit before a permanent
committee for the affairs of their house.

(37) The Diet is constituted by the
appointment of the Presidents, a solemn opening, and
then the formation of committees.

Each order has its President and
Vice-Pre-sident appointed by the Emperor and Grand
Duke, and respectively chosen from amongst
the members ; but, as to the order of the clergy,
the archbishop is always president—or, in his
absence, one of the bishops.

The secretaries are elected by each order,
except in the case of the peasantry, whose
secretary is appointed by the Emperor from
among the jurisconsults.
