The deputies of the National Assembly (AN) approved this Tuesday in second discussion the National Archives Law project. In this way, this law was sanctioned and must be sent to the National Executive for its dissemination as contemplated by the Magna Carta.
The President of the National Assembly, Jorge Rodriguezreported that with the approval of this law, it rises to 13 regulations sanctioned so far this year.
While in the time of operation of the National Assembly, 51 laws have been approved.
Subsequently, the Project of the National Archives Law is sent to the Executive for its dissemination. This regulation declares the custody, conservation and study of the historical documents and archives of the Republic to be of public utility.
On the premises, deputy Pedro Carreño stressed, “we are scoring a point in favor with the updating of the National Archives Law as a result of the new strategies.”
On June 21, the Legislative Power unanimously approved the first discussion of the National Archives Law project, which will allow organizing, cataloging, adapting to modern digitization techniques as well as their dissemination, of all the historical documents of the Homeland, to democratic access to the people and the preservation of national identity.
The project seeks to adapt archive work and its modernization with the new times, both for the archive of public and private documents, with the new information and communication technologies, preserving all the content that rests in the Historical Archive of the Nation.
As the Archives Law grants the General Archive control, surveillance and supervision of general documents and archives, it is proposed to incorporate it as an entity attached to the Ministry of People’s Power for Culture.
