Future Cuban Parliament’s diversity acknowledged in France

Future Cuban Parliament’s diversity acknowledged in France

Paris, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) The Cuba Coopération France (CubaCoop) association acknowledged the presence of women and young people among all 470 lawmakers elected in Cuba for the 10th Legislature of the National People's Power Assembly (Parliament), which will be installed on April 19.

In its weekly publication La lettre électronique Hebdo, the organization, created in 1995, highlighted that 55 percent of the seats will be occupied by women, two points more than in the previous Legislature, confirming Cuba among the countries with the highest female participation in parliamentary sphere.

Regarding young people (under 35 years of age), they will represent two out of every 10 lawmakers elected in last Sunday’s national elections, it said.

According to the information circulated by CubaCoop to its thousands of subscribers, the democratic process was a success, considering the citizens’ participation and Cuba’s difficult economic context, marked by the daily impact of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States.

In that regard, it mentioned the attendance at the polls of about 76 percent of the electoral roll of more than eight million people.

We recall that in Cuba the right to vote is automatic from the age of 16, and is exercised freely and secretly, it stressed.
