Cuba announces general elections for October
Published on July 6, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- The Cuban Council of State has called general elections for October. A note published by Granma and Juventud Rebelde newspapers on Thursday read that, in conformity with the Cuban Constitution and the Electoral Law of 29 October 1992, the Council of State agreed to call on voters to general elections, which include the voting of delegates to municipal and provincial People’s Power assemblies, and the deputies of the National Assembly (Parliament).

The election of municipal assembly delegates for a two-and-a-half-year term will be held Sunday, October 21, 2012, with a second round of elections foreseen for Sunday, October 28, in those electoral districts where none of the candidates reaches more than 50 percent of the valid votes.

The date of the elections of provincial assembly delegates and Parliament deputies for a five-year term will be announced later, the note read.
