We are entering a decisive stage in building the support we need to ensure approval of the emancipatory principles of equality and inclusion defended in the Families Code, stated Party First Secretary and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, yesterday, June 23, during a meeting, in the Palace of the Revolution, to review every step taken in the construction and explanation of the Families Code.
With summer upon us, leading up to September, when the referendum will be held, the Cuban President reiterated that this is no time to relax. Undoubtedly, he said, the virtues of the Familes Code are recognized by a significant portion of the population, but we can, and have the potential, to reach more people, adding that our population also appreciates the Drafting Commission and the specialists who have led the explanation process.
After authorities in the provinces of Holguín and Guantánamo reported via videoconference the work done after reviewing the results of the popular consultation, Diaz-Canel emphasized the importance of going door to door, family by family, talking with every youth, every worker about the Code.
It is time, he indicated, to explain the referendum procedure, how the vote will be conducted, how question will be formulated, etc.
This is a Familes Code of spirituality, of emotions, addressing problems that have not been resolved in our society, he added.
During the meeting with the Drafting Commission, led by Political Bureau member and Party Secretary of Organization Roberto Morales Ojeda, leaders of the Federation of Cuban Women and the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution also explained the work they are doing in communities to continue explaining and clarifying the Families Code. The preparation of electoral structures and training of those involved in the referendum process were analyzed, as well.
During the month of July, the Familes Code will be put to the consideration of deputies to the National Assembly of People’s Power, including changes made as a result of the popular consultation in which more than six million Cubans participated.
