The Plebeian Council (concilium plebis) is the principal popular assembly of the Roman Republic. As the name suggests, the Plebeian Council was organized as a Council, and not as an Assembly. It functions as a gathering through which the Plebeians (commoners) can pass laws, elect magistrates, and try judicial cases. The assembly elects the Tribunes of the Plebs and the plebeian aediles, and only the plebeians are allowed to vote.
