Cubans to approve final draft of constitution in February

Cuba’s new president is overseeing what’s being called ‘the modernisation of socialism’ in the country.

Cuba has begun a modernisation campaign and part of that effort is both a new constitution and allowing ordinary citizens to weigh in on the document’s contents.

Cubans are getting a chance to express their views on the draft constitution, which will be approved by the National Assembly before a referendum in February.
