Cuban citizens propose their government representatives


Cuban citizens propose their government representatives

Havana, Nov 10 (Prensa Latina) With their hands raised, the residents of a community in Cerro municipality, in the Cuban capital, ratified as their proposal of a representative to the local government, the doctor who held that position in the past two years.

They did so after an hour in which the people of the neighborhood reviewed the names of those who live in the area and who know well their concerns and needs, and about whom they exposed their qualities, all as part of the process of nomination of candidates for delegates to the People’s Power.

This is the foundation of the Cuban democratic system, in accordance with the country’s legislation, since it is the citizens themselves that nominate their representatives who, in addition to being part of the municipal government structures, constitute the fundamental source of the National Assembly of People’s Power (parliament).

For Nivia Rodriguez, a resident in Cerro, it is an important step to ensure a good management in the coming years, ‘who better than someone we know and who knows our problems, a person like that is the best person to defend our interests’, she says.

It is a process that also takes into account the conditions and individual capacity to assume this task, says Reyna Gutierrez, also from this community, who alluded to the effort required to carry out the functions as delegate, without abandoning her professional performance.

The current process of nomination of candidates for the municipal assemblies of the People’s Power began on October 21 throughout the country and should conclude next November 18.
