The various attributions that the constitution of the Republic assigns to the Assembly as a body-power of national rank reveals a variety of functions and tasks that make it become a very rich and creative multifunctional entity in the design of State institutions. It has very broad functions that must be exercised with the rhythm and efficiency assigned to it by the set of principles and norms of a pluralistic, democratic, federal, social, justice and legal state. Hence, we consider it as an entity that can travel through any space in order to specify the purposes of the State.
It can be affirmed that its existence cannot be dispensed with because as a plural body it has enormous legitimacy that no other power possesses. In it coexist the political criteria that seek the necessary consensus that allow the operation of the State machinery.
The foregoing shows that those who make it up have a great mission to fulfill to be able to perform as required by the purposes of the State. Hence, it is not possible to be a body submissive to the unipersonal criterion of the President of the Republic, since its actions are monitored and controlled by the National Assembly. It cannot be that a plural and heterogeneous power follows the dictates and the lines that come from Miraflores, unconditionally. The direction should be the reverse. It is the National Executive who must have the criteria and vision of this body endowed with plurality, with greater scope and which brings together a diverse group that has a broader and more plural horizon.
That until now the institutional life of the American republics has not been like this does not deny what we affirm. The National Assembly has greater communication with citizens than the President of the Republic. Therefore, it can be an institution that fosters the necessary consensus in a divided, fissured community that does not listen to itself, that does not dialogue. It is enough to follow the path outlined in the Constitution that foresees a collaboration of powers, in the destiny of achieving the aims of the State.
The election of the National Assembly calls to vote for it. If the orientation is plural even better. Agreements will come, not executive linear imposition, democratic consensuses.
