“I do not see myself as a singer songwriter in the National People’s Power Assembly (Parliament), I see myself as a citizen who has his disagreements and his joys, and I intend to do my job transparently so that things improve,” Sosa said in exclusive statements to Prensa Latina.
The candidate from the Havana municipality of 10 de Octubre confessed that he had already been nominated once, but he felt he was not mature enough to assume such a responsibility.
For him, being among all 470 candidates causes him the logical fear of assuming an unknown role, and to this is added the complex world economic crisis and that in Cuba, which is exacerbated by the United States blockade. When I accepted, I did so because I am not going to be a coward and stop saying the things that I criticize, in a circle of friends or family, in the place where solutions can really be found. “And therefore, I will do it with the consistency that I have lived up to now, because I intend, and it is my firm conviction, to continue to look straight at mine,” he said.
In that regard, Sosa stressed that being there, in that legislative body, is a new scenario to which he will need time and a lot of effort to adapt.
In his opinion, the main challenges for this 10th Legislature will be to achieve better communication among the decision-making parties of the nation and the voters.
He stressed that it is no secret to anyone that those who are part of Parliament do not have immediate solutions in their hands, and it is necessary for there to be an efficient exchange, so that the people know, clearly and without a technical language, what is being doing.
“We also have to take care of that, to better translate each of the claims that are made, but also to better communicate each of the responses to those concerns,” he reiterated.
The tours that he has made with the rest of the candidates represent an opportunity to take the temperature of the environment of each town and also for people to know who they will vote for.
The current candidacy for the Cuban Parliament has a broad representation by sectors. In this regard, Sosa considered that, beyond thinking about and for the job they come from, each one must create for the general advancement of society.
“We need to improve a lot of things, to find a solution to others, to change what needs to be changed and to ensure that Cuban social projects are maintained, but improving,” he pointed out. jg/jcm/kmg/mpp
