Yes.  Short answer - the Orb orbits the office not the person
and if the person changes, well whatever.  Or there's one president
for the duration.  Or, sure, there's no orbited person, laws passed
by the parliament are enacted by the Orb.  Or, who the heck knows.

Note that the Orb is clearly autonomous to some extent, so maybe
the idea of it reading legislative output and court decisions
and executive orders isn't entirely crazy.
