On Twitter, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said that this process, in which 26,740 voters participated, was successfully completed, including Cubans in other missions abroad.

The minister added that “the 14,665 interventions and 13,191 proposals made will enrich this transcendental bill.”

The referendum on a new Family Code is already in its final stretch prior to its approval.

The process began across the country in early February and will conclude on April 30, promoted by the National Electoral Council, with the aim of gathering the population’s proposals to amend the articles of the Code of Families.

The process has included Cuban residents in other countries, since from the very beginning a link was set up on the Foreign Ministry’s website so they could also express their opinions on this subject.

Opinions resulting from thousands of meetings in neighborhoods throughout the country may be additions, deletions or clarifications on aspects of the bill, which will be subsequently submitted to the consideration of the National Assembly of People’s Power (parliament) to enrich the document.

Finally, some seven million voters will be summoned to a referendum in which the Family Code will be submitted for Cubans’ approval.
