It takes care of the completion of all other attributions or assignments requested of it by the Assembly.
Its tasks also include the appointment of the three confederation Vice presidents, and the eventual integration of the Executive Board with two other components to whom, due to previous experience gained through past organizational positions or specific capacities and obvious fame, it would be suitable to assign particularly important tasks in a confederation context.
