Cuba carries out test ahead of national elections

Havana, Mar 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuba is carrying out today an electoral test with a view to the national elections next March 26, when 470 deputies to the National Assembly of People's Power (parliament) will be elected.

This Sunday’s exercise will consist first of a practical test in the polling stations and in each of the structures where the conditions of lighting, documentation, communications, space to exercise the vote were created.

Afterwards, a practical exercise will be carried out with ballots that will not bear the names of the candidates, which will include a scrutiny and the transmission of the votes, according to the Vice President of the National Electoral Council (CEN), Tomás Amarán.

He pointed out that the 23,468 polling stations and the almost 200,000 people involved in the elections will be movilized in order to get the system ready.

According to CEN spokesperson, Marina Carbó, all these actions are aimed at ensuring that the elections are well organized and transparent as established by the country’s electoral law.

Next Sunday, March 26, Cubans will elect their deputies to the Parliament, for which it is necessary that they know their merits and trajectory. As there is no electoral campaign, public media outlets are reporting on the life and work of all the candidates.

Those elected will be in charge of electing the country’s president and vice president when they gathered in April to open the new legislature.
