HAVANA – Despite being 86 years old, Fidel Castro has expressed he is a candidate for a seat in Cuban Parliament next year.
NDJ World | Published: Dec 18 2012 North America
Cuban paper ‘Gramma’, the official paper for the Communist Party, listed the all candidates for the February 3rd 2013 election.
According to the paper, Castro is leading the list in Santiago de Cuba, a large city in Eastern Cuba. His brother Raúl (81), who became Cuba’s president in 2006, is candidate for a city nearby Santiago.
The Cuban People’s Congress has been in existence for five years and has 612 chairs with equally as many nominees. Oppositions to the party are not allowed and the party has very little ‘real’ power.
In 2008 Raúl Castro was nominated to a five year’s term as ‘chairman of the Counsel of the State and Ministers’. He is expected to keep that position for yet another five years come February.
