In Cuba, a sweeping “family law” code was passed to allow same-sex couples to marry and adopt. The measure – which contained more than 400 articles – was approved by 66.9% to 33.1%.
President Miguel Díaz-Canel, who promoted the law, admitted that while “most of our people will vote in favor of the code… it still has issues that our society as a whole does not understand.”
The measure was earlier approved by Cuba’s parliament, the national assembly, after years of debate. In Cuban elections, no party other than the Communist is allowed.
