For the second day running, the Senate Permanent Commission for Justice and Human Rights continued to analyse in detail the draft Law on the Family Code in order to enrich it in form and substance.
The commission, overseen by the senator Silvestre Siale Bileka, under the supervision of the President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, continued the examination of the draft law on the Family Code in order to improve and enrich the legal text, taking into the socio-cultural situation in the country and African family organisation, in accordance with its various ethnic groups.
The analysis once again led to long intense debates within the Upper Chamber due to the wide concept that African societies give to family, rooted in tradition.
Articles five, six and seven, which cover the legal status of the family, and its capacity and incapacity for representation, occupied the second day of debates.
