Why Cubans are voting on the Family Code
It is an honor for Cuba to be the first nation to submit a Family Code to popular consultation and referendum. It is a testimony to our dedication to ensuring that all voices are heard and that every person has rights to speak out in the legislation that govern our society. We believe that this Code will enhance families and safeguard the rights of all members of society. It is our hope that everyone will participate in the vote and have their voices heard.
The Family Code is a document designed to regulate relations between the families of Cuban citizens, as well as those between Cubans as well as foreigners within Cuban territory. The objective of the Family Code is to enhance the strength of the family, the basic structure of society. The purpose of the Family Code is laid out explicit throughout the preamble.
