The organization has a high commitment, given its role of advising the State and the Government, the First Deputy Minister of the branch Rosabel Gamón explained to Prensa Latina, and pointed out that one of the main challenges is conducting the processes of elaboration of the new laws.
‘We have the responsibility of not having any legal norm contradicting the Constitution, that everything has coherence and respect for it, and is based on the principles of law that our system defends,’ she said.
Gamón stated that the Cuban president, Miguel Díaz-Canel, insisted on having jurists accompany the entire legal system, and requested that the laws have strength and coherence between them.
As Gamón pointed out, the Ministry of Justice is essential in this work, because beyond coordinating and leading the process of drawing up legal regulations, in compliance with the schedule approved by Parliament, it also provides advice to the agencies for the creation of decrees and their resolutions.
According to the Deputy Minister, Cuba has maintained strong and intense legislative activity despite the Covid-19 pandemic, with 11 laws and 49 decree laws approved between 2019 and 2021; while four more bills are being presented for their next discussion.
In this changing context, ‘our mission is to study and master the regulations that come out, train us, prepare ourselves and then contribute to the knowledge of the population,’ the official remarked.
