Constitutional Reform in Cuba: Considerations on Effective Citizenship (Part I + II)


Read the Post in Razones de Cuba Part IPart II  / Need to be translate

The fundamental changes respond to the fact that with the adoption of another citizenship the Cuban one would not be lost, and that once in the national territory, the Cuban citizen is governed by that condition and can only make use of it.

In this regard it can be considered that in a globalized and interdependent world as that which is configured in the present millennium causes many unanimously accepted concepts and principles have to be rethought or restructured, this occurs with the principle of Private International Law that holds that “Nobody can have two citizenship “, and that is only the negative and restrictive manifestation of another principle of Private International Law unanimously accepted by the doctrine until the end of the last century that affirmed affirmatively that” Every person must have a citizenship “.

Why are changes proposed to the structure of the Cuban state and government?


What are the main changes proposed in the draft Constitution, which is currently being debated in neighborhoods, workplaces and schools, regarding the structure of the Cuban state and government? What motivates this decision?

In a panel held at the headquarters of the Union of Cuban Journalists, Dr. Martha Prieto, vice president of the Cuban Society of Constitutional Law and tenured professor at the University of Havana, acknowledged that the proposed changes in the leadership structure of the island are among the most novel of the draft Constitution.

The new proposal separates the functions of the President of the Republic and those of the Prime Minister, which were previously merged into one, based on collegial decision making.

“Now, although he (the President) is the head of the Executive, he must also be a deputy, approved by the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP). This is a necessary measure, because it prevents Assembly-state leadership separation,” the jurist explained.

The Draft Constitution, which is being submitted to popular consultation since August 13, proposes novelties in the higher management bodies, without doubts, the most transcendental in the last 42 years.


  • The figures of the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister return.
  • The Council of State and the National Assembly of People’s Power will have the same address.
  • The Province Assemblies of the Popular Power are eliminated and a Province Government, integrated by the Governor and a Council, is instituted, so that the municipality is strengthened and finally achieves greater autonomy.
  • Likewise, the position of an Intendant is introduced, who shall govern the Board of Directors in the municipalities.

New Constitution for #Cuba: lights and claims

Sin título

From the original post The insonmne pupil 

It was not necessary to announce that the selection of August 13 to begin the massive debate on the draft of the new Cuban Constitution would pay tribute to Fidel Castro. Born on that date of 1926, he forged and led the Revolution that since 1959 reconsidered the life of Cuba and set it on the road to an institutionalization that in 1976 was the first magna carta conceived in the country to serve socialist construction. The will to pay tribute to the founding leader has been present in the constitutional reform set in motion, and in different manifestations of the Cuban people in this regard.

Cuba: economic updates + the new Constitution

Sin título

Since the beginning of the constitutional reform process, much has been written about the reasons change is needed, and foremost among these is the need to adjust the country’s fundamental law to our current reality, especially the transformations underway as the Policy Guidelines from the Seventh Party Congress are implemented, in accordance with strategic projections outlined in the Conceptualization of our economic model.

Thus it is no surprise that, as the popular consultation began on Monday – to continue through November 15 – many have noted that this reform is consistent with the economic updating underway, and that there are many connections to documents approved during the Seventh Party Congress which point toward a more just, sovereign, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable society.

Why is there a single party in Cuba?


“… Multiparty systems are imperialism’s great tool to keep societies fragmented, divided in a thousand pieces; making societies incapable of solving problems and defending their interests.

A country divided in ten pieces is the perfect country to dominate, to subjugate, because the nation is without will, since the will of the nation is divided in many fragments; the strength of the nation is divided in many fragments; all intelligence is divided; and what it has is a constant, interminable battle among parts of the society.

A Third World country cannot afford this luxury. Actually many do give themselves this luxury, clearly for quite a while they have, and for quite a while a large part have been subjugated and dominated.

Clearly, for a society that must confront the problems of underdevelopment and develop under the difficult conditions for development existent in today’s world, unity is essential…

… Thus I have the most profound conviction that the existence of one party is, and must be, for a long historical period – no one can predict how long – the form of political organization of our society “

Fidel Castro Ruz , National Assembly of People’s Power Third Legislature’s 10th period
