Cuba: Approval of Family Code in referendum is an act of justice

Havana, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on Monday that the victory of the Yes vote in the popular referendum on the Family Code was an act of justice.

On his Twitter account, the Cuban leader pointed out that approving this legislation ‘is settling a debt with several generations of Cubans, whose family projects have been postponed for years for this law.’

From Monday on, we will be a better nation, he said.

On Sunday, more than six million Cubans exercised their right to vote throughout the country to endorse the new legal standard with 66.87 percent of the valid ballots cast.

This civic act was described as historic, due to its social transcendence, and because for the first time in Cuba’s constitutional development, a law was submitted to a popular referendum, which placed Cuba among the few countries that have developed such an institution of direct democracy.
