With a call that is expected to reach more than seven million Cubans, 12,513 electoral district commissions (the basic instance of the form of government in the country) have been set up, and the Cuban community abroad will also participate in embassies and consular offices.
Maria Esther Bacallao, secretary of the National Electoral Council, stated that more than 15,000 jurists participated in the previous training stage, including 1,606 law students.
A dynamic test carried out on January 27 and 28 allowed corroborating the organization and preparation of electoral authorities, computer specialists and other participants in the process, as well as the effectiveness and security of the information processing systems.
The delivery of the proposals to the Drafting Commission for their processing is expected to be completed in May, and before that date two information breaks were planned, she said.
The people’s consultation will lead to the debate on the 24th version of the project, approved in December 2021 by Cuban lawmakers.
The proposals will be submitted to the National People’s Power Assembly, which will approve a new version to be submitted to a people’s referendum.
