Cuban President Diaz-Canel hails results of popular referendum

Havana, Sep 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Monday congratulated the Cuban people for the development and results of the civic referendum held on Sunday to endorse the new Family Code.

In a video posted on Twitter, the Cuban president described the approval of the code as “a victory of Cuba, of the Cuban people, of affection, of love, which has also been a victory of democratic participation in the socialist construction.”

Diaz-Canel expressed his satisfaction with the high level of participation on Sunday, “in spite of the difficult economic and energy situation, migratory movements and understandable discrepancies with postulates of the code that have been part of this process.”

Yes won, justice has been done, said the head of State, who claimed that with the approval of this law a debt with generations of Cubans whose family projects have been postponed for years has been settled. Starting on Monday, we will have a better, more complete, more democratic, and fairer nation, he said.

Diaz-Canel recalled that this victory of unity took place amid the United States blockade, which brings about hardships of all kinds for Cuba, and under the relentless fire of a media war, which he described as infamous; “but it is also a nation renewed with the strength of its most authentic values,” he stressed.

He pointed out that as part of an unacknowledged war, the enemies of the Revolution made use of millions-worth resources in the propaganda war to sow negative matrices or induce a negative vote, but they could not overcome the will of the majority of people who voted Yes.
