International Desk with Lisa: February 26th, 2019Cubans vote for a new Constitution: February 26th, 2019
Cubans were invited to vote on a new Constitution, the first since 1976.
While heavy support for the text, which enshrines communism despite offering a few liberal reforms, is to be expected, the almost year-long campaign has given a voice to dissidents, and shown Cubans are not as united as they used to be.
At the time of the recording, the results had not come in. Official results show that 86% of the voters have supported the new Constitution.
