Cuban deputies discuss problems that affect the people
Havana, Jul 20 (Prensa Latina) The agenda approved today at the beginning of the First Ordinary Period of Sessions of the Cuban Parliament in its 10th Legislature covers problems that directly affect the lives of the people, said the president of that body, Esteban Lazo.

At the beginning of this meeting, which will be held until next Saturday at the Palace of Conventions in Havana, the parliamentary leader said that the members of the National Assembly of People's Power (ANPP) will analyze the draft law of the Military Penal Code and the comprehensive policy for the care of children and youth.

The deputies will also examine the fulfillment of the general directives to confront crime, illegalities and social indiscipline; the effectiveness of the measures adopted for price control; the situation and perspectives of the energy system; and the behavior of the economy in the first half of the year, among other topics.

As you may appreciate, the approved agenda will be intense, said Lazo, who stated that, in the exercise of the popular representation it holds, the ANPP is responsible for discussing, analyzing, making proposals and adopting decisions on matters that are part of the public agenda.

This is a responsibility and part of the commitments of each of the deputies with their people, he added before the plenary session, which is attended by the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Raul Castro, and the president of the country, Miguel Diaz-Canel.

On that occasion, he added, I insisted on involving as a first task the promotion of the economy and the welfare of our people.

Lazo pointed out that in the short period of time that has elapsed since then, the ANPP has worked intensely, as was evidenced in the debates of the permanent working commissions held on Tuesday and Wednesday, prior to this Ordinary Session.

In those two days, he said, 85 issues of great popular interest were discussed, related to the economy, production, prices, quality of services and attention needed by people in vulnerable situations, among others.
