The Congress ended today with the first plenary meeting of the new Central Committee elected on Sunday, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the defeat of US-backed mercenaries in Playa Giron (Bay of Pigs).
This body will have the responsibility at this meeting to elect the main PCC posts for the 2021-2026 period.
‘The Generation of the Centennial, founder and guide of the Party, transfers responsibilities. #SomosCuba #SomosContinuidad’ (‘We are Cuba’, ‘We are continuity’) the President tweeted.
The PCC first secretary until now, Raul Castro, on Friday announced that he would not continue holding that position.
