Diaz Canel remembers Fidel Castro’s appointment as Prime Minister

Havana, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel reminded today that on this date, in 1959, the historic leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, occupied the post of Prime Minister, a few weeks after the triumph of the armed struggle.

In his Twitter account, the president said: ‘The Commander in Chief of the Sierra Maestra signs as Prime Minister on February 16, 1959.

The guerrilla leader became a statesman and opened the way to the laws expected by the people’. Fidel Castro took office as Prime Minister of the Revolutionary Government in a ceremony at the Presidential Palace (today Museum of the Revolution), which was broadcast on radio and television.

At that time he expressed that the Revolution would have many obstacles ahead and although it would not be able to do things perfectly, it would be in permanent rectifying purpose of everything that was not well done.

Similarly, he pointed out that ‘what the Revolution will never do is to be tolerant with denying principles for which we have been fighting’.
