1. The Minister of Justice appoints, for each registry office, a registrar entrusted with the keeping of that office.
The Minister of Justice may, however, where the circumstances so require, entrust the keeping of more than one registry office to the same registrar.
Each registrar is, by virtue of his office and as long as he remains in office, deputy registrar for every registry office other than that for which he was appointed.
