The eight candidates met and talked with young people who were away from study and work for years and learned the stories of those young people with 10 or 15 years away from study.
Some of them have found new opportunities in nursing or pedagogy trainings, while others -who have not yet entered into any social activity- also spoke with the candidates and shared their life experiences marked by social and family disadvantages.
President Díaz-Canel said that more openings should be created for young people, and assured that the aspiration of the Revolution is that no Cuban should be disconnected from the study and work.
Principal of elementary school Leonel del Valle, on the other hand, called on young people to move forward, not to falter in their aspirations and to be more prepared.
The Revolution itself has to be a big opportunity for all young people, said Miguel Colina, Villa Clara First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and candidate for deputy.
The candidates also had an emotional exchange with women workers, housewives and retired women, all members of the Federation of Cuban Women, with whom they discussed the key role of women in the Cuban society as well as the efforts to achieve full gender-based equality nationwide.
