All 113 members of the Central Committee will also discuss the proposed modifications to the organization’s regulations, as well as those related to the processes of admission, sanctions and deactivation.

The agenda also includes dialogue on issues related to ideological work, mainly research, teaching and dissemination of History and Marxism Leninism.

In addition, participant will give their opinions on the proposed national program for the study, research and dissemination of the thought, life and work of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
