The President of the Assembly was supreme leader of Ape City. Dr. Zaius was answerable to him but the governing orangutan elite generally agreed on matters of faith and protection of ape order. The President oversaw Taylor's interrogation and found in favour of Zaius.

NotesEdit

  • The earliest movie scripts by Rod Serling retained Boulle's version of the gorilla president and his friendly welcome for 'Thomas' (Taylor).[1] Serling's later revisions were similar, but changed the president's species to orangutan, reflecting a much more stereotypical division of the ape classes.[2]
