Diaz-Canel ponders bet on affection in Family Code

Diaz-Canel ponders bet on affection in Family Code

Havana, Sep 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday praised that the new Family Code bets on affection for the constitution of legal ties, essentially those of the family.

For this reason, the president wrote on his Twitter account, “a scenario of rigidity about an opening to flexibility and interdisciplinarity” has had to be adjusted in terms of the law.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, on the same social network, highlighted the contribution of revolutionary fighter Vilma Espin to the new legal provision.

He said that Espin “devoted her life to the effort of achieving greater justice for all people, and to live in a society without discrimination whatsoever.”

The new Family Code seeks to protect vulnerable sectors of society and reinforces people’s power of decision to get married or not, or to form or not a de facto union, whether hetero or homo-affective.

It also addresses discrimination and family violence, recognizes the rights of the elderly and complies with Cuba’s international commitments on these matters.
