Caracas, January 9, 2023 (Press MinComunas) – This Monday, during the Notification Ceremony to the National Executive on the start of the 2023-2024 Sessions of the National Assembly (NA), the President of the Republic, Nicolas Maduro, urged the Venezuelan Parliament to build a permanent consultation network regarding the legislative plan for this year. It must inescapably reflect the People’s Power’s contributions.
“There are essential laws before you to renew the People’s Power. We must continue building the People’s Power to empower more and more the social and neighborhood organizations, the grassroots organizations of the country”, highlighted the President during a meeting at Miraflores with the leadership of the National Assembly, parliamentarians, and part of the Executive Cabinet.
The head of state stressed that this process must come from the people and that we must transform the instruments into laws that will impact and improve the quality of the People’s Power organizations.
“It is essential for a country like ours having a National Assembly with doors open to the nation and for the people to be sufficiently aware of the legislative plan […]. And when the law passes, at the end of the roads, it should gather the people’s opinion on the main issues that touch each of the laws of the republic,” added President Maduro at the broadcast meeting on Venezolana de Television.
The President ordered in the last quarter of 2022, during a ceremony to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Coup de Timon, a review of the compendium of the People’s Power laws, with the vision of consolidating a new model of participation of the communities.
Since then, the NA and the People’s Power Ministry for Communes and Social Movements developed a national consultation to allow the Venezuelan people to submit their proposals leading to the transformation of the People’s Power laws.
The consultation covered all regions of the nation, either online (on the home web page of this ministerial body) or in person at communal assemblies.
