Cuba questions colonial and interfering practices at IPU event

Cuba questions colonial and interfering practices at IPU event

Madrid, Dec 1 (Prensa Latina) Cuba on Wednesday questioned at the 143rd Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) the colonial and interfering practices that threaten democracy in Third World nations.

Addressing the IPU plenary session, Yolanda Ferrer, president of the International Relations Commission at the Cuban National Assembly, stated that “democracy will be very fragile in most Third World nations as long as colonial and interfering practices exist.”

The Cuban legislator mentioned exclusion, corruption, forgetfulness of election pledges and power abuse, as scourges that reduce the confidence of the peoples in the political systems, in which, however, “democracy, practically absent in the facts, dominates the speeches.”

Ferrer pointed out the need to eradicate the social injustice that is often ignored and tolerated by the current model in much of the planet. “A greater presence of young people, women and other under-represented social groups in Parliaments is also required,” she said.

The parliamentarian took the opportunity to comment that for almost three decades, the United Nations General Assembly has been approving a resolution demanding to put an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against the Cuban people.

The legislator stressed that the Caribbean nation has controlled the Covid-19 pandemic, while 56 Cuban medical brigades have given medical care in more than 40 countries.
