Head change in Cuba. The era of Castro goes down in history

66
From the Island of Freedom comes important information that the head of state Raul Castro left his post due to deteriorating health. The National Assembly, which is the country's highest legislative body in Cuba, elected Miguel Díaz-Kanel as chairman of the State Council and Council of Ministers (both of which were Raul Castro).


Head change in Cuba. The era of Castro goes down in history


By and large, there was no sensation in Cuba, since the change of leadership in the country has been said all lately. And this question was raised by 86-year-old Raul Castro.

The new head of the State Council of Cuba and the Council of Ministers 57 years. He was the only candidate for these posts. Voting in the National Assembly was held in secret. The result is known: the candidacy of Miguel Diaz-Kanel was supported by an 603 deputy. The total number of voters - 605 people.

Thus, on Olympus, the Cuban regime is changing an entire era - the era of Castro. After the death of his brother Fidel, Raul leaves the post and transfers power to the “young” generation of leaders.

The elected head of the Cuban State Council noted that he would continue to follow the political course followed by Cuba for those years - a course towards social equality and an increase in the level of citizens' well-being.

Miguel Diaz-Kanel has an engineering background. From 2013 year - the first deputy head of the State Council of Cuba.

In 2016, Dias-Kanel made a visit to Moscow, where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It should be noted that part of the authority for Raul Castro is still preserved. So, he remains 1 secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba.

      Weak hope .. And then again, the United States will turn Cuba into a big brothel!

        Why is there a weak hope? Their selection for managerial posts is going very carefully (not like we had memorable times). So I hope that they will not have a brothel. Yes, and it’s time for us to stop it (brothel).

            The selection of this candidate, for which they then vote. Logically, if he was carefully selected, then the vote showed that there was no objection to the candidate.

          they are too small for full independence, and we differ from the states only in name and hierarchy in the capitalist world. That is, also nifiga is not a support and not an ally - our bosses will sell easily and without compulsion.

              My friend also returned from the USA, refused a green card. For half a year he worked in a furniture factory in a place with illegal Mexicans who plow for 16 hours and sleep in boxes in the factory, almost at the level of slaves. This is where Human Rights, Law Above All, Coca-Cola, Jeans , and chewing gum, but everyone who doesn't like one call to Immigration and expulsion.

      Cuba is my love!
      The island of dawn is crimson ...
      A song flies above the planet ringing:
      “Cuba is my love!”

      Do you hear the chased step?
      This is go Barbudos.
      The sky above them is like a fiery banner ...
      Do you hear the chased step?

      Courage knows the goal.
      Has become a legend of Cuba ...
      Fidel speaks again with inspiration, -
      Courage knows the goal!

      Homeland or Death! -
      These are fearless vows.
      The sun of freedom over Cuba burn!
      Homeland or Death!

      Cuba is my love!
      The island of dawn is crimson ...
      A song flies above the planet ringing:
      “Cuba is my love!”

            Well, yes, to confuse causes with consequences is the demagogue's favorite thing. Firstly, they have everything in order with the economy, as long as they maintain instability around the world, as they say, until the last Ukrainian, that is, precisely because they carry democracy along with the dollar, and whoever does not want democracy and the dollar carry rockets. All their world situation, including the dollar, is based on the profitable conduct of two world wars. Secondly, in your opinion, it turns out that if everything is not in order with the economy, then we do not need to uphold our interests and sovereignty, shut up and go aside. Well, who are you after that? I don’t know, I hope this is just utter nonsense. Maybe not everything is lost, if you start at least with a textbook of logic, there has recently been an article with a video where the old Soviet textbook of logic is very thin, it should be able to.

    The Chairman of the State Council and the Council of Ministers of Cuba under the Constitution of the country is one inseparable position. Part of the powers are performed as head of state, part as head of government. Therefore, the person holding this position does not combine two posts.

    If only he didn’t lie down under the USA ... but in general it’s even sad to remember that Fidel is already gone ...

    Yes, nifiga is not small. They live on their own slowly, mattresses go to them for treatment, because Cuba has better medicine than the United States. Like this.

    What would not sit in a puddle - it is better to fly and see how they live there! And then much rubbish then grind without knowing!

      It’s not even necessary to fly, there is enough information on TV and net, people live in full well ...., there is still a system of cards for food, a salary of about 20 bucks, and then Fidel shouted cheers. DGI is watched everywhere, you won’t have time to pickle You’ll find yourself in a lattice. When does this social disintegration collapse in Cuba, in Korea, but it’s certain that it will fall apart.

    We must really return to Liberty Island, and help the Cubans to modernize the economy, and their defense industry!

    Are you kidding me? What the heck is our economy _ factories have become trading platforms! Well, at least the military-industrial complex is warming up at the very least - over the past year a whole hundred planes have been transferred to the Army, though together with helicopters! We’re sitting on the needle, drug addicts are bad, but this President doesn’t see idleness in the “ooh government of the Russian Federation” and it seems he’s not going to change anything ... Let's see what opens in May ...
