Caracas, December 16, 2022 (Press MinComunas) – Following the instructions of President Nicolas Maduro, “2023 will be the year of the People’s Power, so we are moving forward in the creation and consolidation of the government in the territory”.

Regarding financing, he assured that the Communes and Communal Councils have the right to receive credits for productive, socio-productive, and service projects. “We can protect the people from the Commune with the support of the Missions and Great Missions, and the articulation with the Work Committees and the government instances. We must guarantee and generate the government in the territory”.
He indicated that the Public Banks are granting credits through the Bicentenary Bank, Venezuela, and the Tesoro, “the only moral requirement demanded is that the project has a true communal planning.”
Proposals to reform laws are moving forward
