The constitutional lawyer Eliseo Nuñez explained to Article 66 that the implementation of the online sale of sealed paper is something that is necessary in Nicaragua and a correct step if it lived in a democracy, because in a dictatorship this initiative “becomes suspect.”

The Ortega Murillo administration can use it to make this project official “to punish or reward depending on its political interests and not depending on what the law says,” Nuñez said.

In addition, the lawyer maintained that this initiative seeks to centralize the sale of stamped paper, but “it is the type of centralization that is normally good in a democracy, but in this case they will be able to use that centralization, for example, to prevent a notary from buying when They do not think what this notary is doing, to prevent a business or for any other type of thing.
