Havana, February 24 (RHC)-- Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel says the Family Code, being discussed islandwide, is socialist.
From the Palace of the Revolution, the Head of State shared this concept regarding a text that concerns all Cubans, taking into account "the levels of emancipation" and safeguards it offers "in terms of guarantees" to the Cuban family, population sectors such as the elderly, people with disabilities, women, children and young people.
It is something, he said, "that can only be conceived in the conditions of socialism; therefore, here, with this Code, we are defending socialism."
His reflection took place during a meeting that evaluated the consultation process of the draft of the Code of Families.
"Undoubtedly, we already have the tendencies, we have the behaviors, and there are elements that we have to improve," the head of state said
The President of the National Electoral Council (CEN), Alina Balseiro Gutiérrez, said that more than 97% of the meetings planned for the consultation with the population to date have already taken place.
