|President of the Assembly|
| First Appearance: Planet of the Apes
Last Appearance: Planet of the Apes
The President of the Assembly is leader of Ape City. Zaius is answerable to him but the governing orangutan elite agree on matters of faith and protection of ape order. The President oversees Taylor's interogation and finds in favour of Zaius.
He later died when Taylor detonated the Alpha-Omega Bomb, destorying the entire Earth.
- The earliest movie scripts by Rod Serling retained Boulle's version of the gorilla president and his friendly welcome for Thomas (Taylor). Serling's later revisions were similar, but changed the president's species to orangutan, reflecting a much more stereotypical division of the ape classes.
