Cuba Says YES, Loud and Clear: New Constitution

The 86.85% of voters who cast ballots on February 24 said YES to the new Constitution, 6,816,169 Cubans who reaffirmed their commitment to the country’s socialist project, respect for rights, and inclusion – that is the full dignity of the people.

The 86.85% of voters who cast ballots on February 24 said YES to the new Constitution, 6,816,169 Cubans who reaffirmed their commitment to the country’s socialist project, respect for rights, and inclusion – that is the full dignity of the people.

This support, undoubtedly massive, in a popular process in which every citizen acted as a constituent, acquires greater resonance in the current adverse international context, with imperialism beating the drums of war and announcing the end of all utopias.

But Cuba, with 150 years of struggle behind us, is not willing to surrender.

Unity, consciousness, legal culture, revolutionary reaffirmation … are what prevailed in the constitutional reform process, an experience that will not end with the proclamation of the new Magna Carta.

The tremendous challenge of adjusting laws to the Constitution’s essence will begin: implementing, acting and, above all, respecting the letter of the supreme law, which is sacred. Every statement is to be put into practice – that is the challenge – one that Fidel warned us of, and that has been assumed as the central axis of next steps.

With all and for the good of all, for every citizen of Cuba, regardless of their vote, will be the foundation of the country resulting from this YES, every day better, always in Revolution, with the willingness to change what must be changed, and confidence in human improvement.
