REFERENDUM IN CUBA 26. 02. 2019.   >>  16:36 0


For new constitution almost 90 percent of population

Nearly 87 percent of Cuban voters approved a new constitution that preserves the island's single-party socialist system and centrally planned economy while updating some financial, electoral and criminal laws, authorities said on Monday.

The margin of victory was relatively low for a country where opposition parties and campaigns are illegal and official proposals routinely receive higher than 90 percent approval, reports the Associated Press

Cubans have overwhelmingly ratified a new constitution that reaffirms that socialism on the island is “irrevocable” while also legalising modest economic reforms instituted over the last decade.

But in an unprecedented display of ballot-box dissent on the Communist-ruled island, more than 700,000 people voted “no” to the new founding document.

86.85% of those who voted answered “yes” to the question, “Do you ratify the new constitution of the Republic”. 9% of voters opposed ratification and 4.15% spoiled or left ballots blank. Turnout was 84.4%

The head of Cuba's National Electoral Commission said 7,848,343 people voted on Sunday on the new constitution, which was widely promoted as a vehicle for continuity in one of the world's last communist nations, whose founding generation of olive-clad revolutionaries is ceding the public spotlight to a new class of middle-aged bureaucrats.

Some 300,000 votes were counted as invalid because they were blank or defaced.

And 706,400 people voted against the new constitution.

The commission said 6,816,169 people voted in favour of the new charter.

The current constitution was approved by 97.7 percent of voters in a referendum in 1976.
