Miguel Daz-Canel, a year in the shadow of Ral Castro
There were no surprises, so difficult in Cuba, where everything is tied and well tied. Miguel Daz-Canel, until today president of the Councils of State and Ministers, is the new president of the Caribbean nation after the elections held in extraordinary session of the National Assembly of Popular Power, marked by continuism . A figure, that of the president, which ceased to exist more than four decades ago. The result says almost everything: 579 affirmative votes of the 580 deputies present. Some figures almost traced from those achieved last year, when Daz-Canel obtained the support of 607 of the 608 who attended the historic session on April 19. “Intense and challenging days await us, but nobody is going to take away our confidence in the future we owe to our children in the homeland that the parents beat us standing up, “has corroborated the character of the day. Parliament is made up of a vast majority of militants of the Communist Party (PCC), considered by the new Constitution as the “superior leading force of society.” The asamblestas have celebrated with a strong ovation the confirmation of the triumph of Daz-Canel, of 59 years, a man of the apparatus modeled during decades by Ral. It is not much less a change or political turn, but the culmination of the new architecture of power devised by Ral Castro, once the years have put an end to the charismatic hyper-leaderships of the two brothers . Ral’s commitment is to restructure political charges, enthrone a president of the State, a position limited to two legislatures and a president of the Government at the head of the Council of Ministers. It is not a division of powers, but its deconcentration and distribution. Next to Daz-Canel, who replaced Ral 18 months ago as Vice President being Salvador Valds Mesa, until now First Vice President of the Council of State and former secretary general of the Central of Workers. Esteban Lazo also continue to lead the Assembly. In the State Council the same leaders repeat, with the exception of three significant departures: the historic commander Ramiro Valds (87 years), Commander Guillermo Garca Fras ( 91) and the Minister of the Armed Forces and General of the Army Corps, Leopoldo Cintra Fras (78), a powerful military man very close to Ral.According to the criteria of The Trust Project
