Deep debates abroad on Cuba’s Family Code bill


Deep debates abroad on Cuba’s Family Code bill

Havana, Mar 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Saturday described as deep the debates on the Family Code bill that his country's state missions abroad are holding.

On his Twitter account, the foreign minister wrote that so far, 96 percent of the meetings scheduled as part of the popular consultations on the legal document have been held at Cuban embassies and missions in all continents.

Rodriguez stated that, from those meetings, around 13,965 comments and 12,512 concrete proposals by Cubans have been made.

About the Family Code, Cuban residents abroad can also provide their criteria through the Nation and Emigration website, Ernesto Soberon, general director of Consular Affairs and Cuban Residents Abroad at the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX), stated.

A precedent of the emigration’s participation in the democratic processes in Cuba is in the 2018 debate on the then draft Constitution of the Republic, approved the following year with more than 86 percent of votes in a popular referendum.

This time, more than seven million Cubans are convened to debate until April 30 on the legal norm and offer their approval, disagreement or proposals for modification.
