According to the figures of the National Electoral Council, there are a little more than 1,000 polling stations set up abroad so that Cubans on official missions can exercise their right to vote in 123 countries.

These are Cubans who collaborate in health, sports, education missions or are fulfilling other tasks.

The Code of Families to be submitted to the approval of citizens next Sunday is based on principles such as plurality, inclusion, solidarity and the pursuit of happiness for all people.

It has generated the majority support of the population in the popular consultation process at the beginning of this year and the expected rejection of religious fundamentalist groups, led by the Cuban Catholic hierarchy less than a week ago.
