After having discussed the articles and final provisions of the lawRodríguez stressed that the approval of the legal instrument seeks to fulfill the commitment made with the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, in the need to adapt the laws of popular power “to the new times of this Venezuela that points to the future.”
