2. The Minister of Justice appoints one or more deputy registrars for each registration division.
Deputy registrars have, in all respects, the same powers, duties and obligations as the registrar and exercise or perform them under the authority of the registrar.
Each deputy registrar is, by virtue of his office and as long as he remains in office, a deputy registrar for every registry office other than that for which he was appointed.
The Minister of Justice or any officer of his department designated by him in writing may, where the circumstances so require, appoint deputy registrars for the time he fixes, from among the personnel of the registry offices. The instrument of appointment may limit their powers and functions and specify the conditions governing the exercise thereof.
