Isle of Youth.– With their presence at the polls this coming February 24, the Cuban people will reaffirm their commitment to the continuity of the Revolution and the determination to defend its conquests, and as the best way to honor José Martí, Fidel Castro, and the homeland’s heroes, stated Esteban Lazo Hernández, president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, during a visit to the Special Municipality.
Lazo added that this is a Constitution for and by the people, and a product of agreements reached at Party congresses, as envisioned in the Guidelines for Social and Economic Policy and the Conceptualization of Cuba’s model.
The new Carta Magna establishes the legal basis for the country’s development and embodies Fidel´s concept of Revolution, he noted, defending social justice, solidarity, and the countrys independence, while reflecting 150 years of struggle that cannot be betrayed.
In his comments, during an extraordinary session of the Municipal Assembly of People's Power, he called for the improvement of government structures and delegates’ work; rational use of resources; maintaining close ties with the population and their problems, while avoiding bureaucratic practices; and further reducing imports while increasing exports.
He also congratulated Livan Fuentes Álvarez, elected as President of the Isle of Youth’s Assembly of People’s Power, and Mariolis Pérez Domínguez, as Vice President.
