Accra, Mar 12 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban state mission in Ghana began today the consultation of the project to provide with a new Family Code, whose final approval will depend on the vote by referendum.

In statements to Prensa Latina, Ambassador Anette Chao reported that the most debated issues were the adoption of minors, the recognition of the progressive autonomy of children and adolescents, and the obligation to offer care to vulnerable people.

As she explained, 20 compatriots participated in the analysis, including a 16-year-old boy, Oscar Ortiz, who for the first time exercises his rights as a voter, after reaching the age established on the Island.

On March 1, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez announced, through his Twitter account, that 125 constituency electoral commissions abroad would guarantee the preparations and the development of 1,160 meetings in the state missions of his country.


In the case of Ghana, Chao indicated, three meetings were planned with the members of the state representation, which he considered an “important opportunity” to contribute to the design of a legal norm capable of reflecting the reality of current Cuban society, its inclusive and humanist nature.

Likewise, she recalled that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs enabled a section on the Nation and Emigration website that allows Cubans residing abroad to participate in the consultation.

The portal gives access to a template for sending comments and proposals on the legal proposal, she said.
