President Diaz-Canel stresses importance of Family Code bill

Havana, Sep 10 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Saturday stressed the importance of the Family Code bill due to its projection in the defense of the most vulnerable social sectors, especially children.

On his Twitter account, he recalled the words of National Hero Jose Marti who said that “children are the hope of the world,” and pointed out that “we are building and will continue building this nation for them.”

Diaz-Canel added that “each article of the #FamilyCode is thinking about them, their rights, their duties, their education, their family inclusion, the value of their word.”

The legislative text, in its 25th version, will be submitted to a referendum on September 25, after being approved by the National People’s Power Assembly (Parliament) in June.

The parliamentarians passed the document, which resulted from the proposals gathered among the population in a broad process of popular consultation that lasted from February to April this year and in which 6,481,207 Cubans, 75.93 percent of those summoned, participated, according to statistics from the National Electoral Commission (CEN).

This Code, which if approved by the people will replace the one in force since 1976, is considered advanced not only by Cuban authorities, but also by internationally recognized specialists.
