In this sense, he celebrated the meaning and importance of these elections because “they are in line with the work in recent years to perfect socialist democracy within the concept of People’s Power developed by the Commander in Chief [Fidel Castro]”.

The Cuban Prime Minister, Manuel Marrero, and the Secretary of Organization of the Communist Party of Cuba, Roberto Morales, also exercised their right to vote on Sunday morning.

In this context, the Cuban president made a call to reinforce what he called “the mechanisms through which the people participate and decisions are made based on the proposals, criticisms and debates that are made at the popular level.”

Regarding the authorities that are elected this Sunday, President Díaz-Canel appreciated that “they address and approve the development programs based on the country’s priorities. Afterwards, the communities participate by implementing what they themselves proposed and has been approved by their participatory bodies”.

The elections this Sunday are the first step for the renewal of the National Assembly of People’s Power, at the beginning of next year, in which the new Cuban president is elected for the period 2023-2028.
