This Thursday, the National Assembly (AN), approved in the second discussion the Stamp Law Project, which seeks to regulate matters related to the official stamps of the organs and entities of the Public Power of the country, at the national, state and municipal.
The first discussion was approved in June of this year in the same parliamentary building.
The law establishes in its article 7 that the official stamps are the National Sealthe Seal of the Bodies of the National, State and Municipal Legislative Power, the Seal of the Bodies of the National, State and Municipal Executive Power.
In addition, it includes the seals of the Bodies of the Judicial Power, the Seal of the Bodies of the Citizen Power, the Seal of the Bodies of the Electoral Power, the Seal of the Attorney General of the Republic, the Seal of the Diplomatic and Consular Representatives, the Seal of Public Records and those of Public Notaries and those of the Authorities of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB).
The proposal, which repealed the current norm in force since June 28, 1957, was presented in the first discussion by Deputy Rafael Enrique Ramos, and consists of ten articles, a repealing provision and a final one.
«We approve this Seal Law project, so that it becomes a Law of the Republic. That is the role of the modern National Assembly, which looks to the future and adapts its legal instruments to a modern society,” said Jorge Rodríguez, president of Parliament.
Rodríguez urged legislators to continue reviewing the processes to adapt legal instruments to the new reality with technological advances, digitization and communication, to make them valid in the construction of the future.
The rule is governed by the principles of legality, efficacy, speed, suitability, efficiency, effectiveness, and integrity of the functions of custody, conservation and use of the official seals of the Republic.
