This statutory form of the general power of attorney (POA) is similar to that contained in the English Powers of Attorney Act. It is suitable only for use by an individual since it is unlimited and unqualified.

The POA confers power to Party 2 to do or complete any act on behalf of the principal, except acts that require the principal to act himself. The agent has the authority to make decisions concerning the principal's assets, in addition, medical decisions could be made on behalf of the principal.

An example of an appointment may be to swear an affidavit or performing duties of a personal office held by him, e.g. directorship. 

POAs are used in events where the principal has an illness or disability and might not be able to make decisions or sign legal documents.
