Abel Prieto praises failure campaigns against Cuban elections

Havana, Mar 27 (Prensa Latina) Campaigns to sow distrust, divisions and hatred among Cubans have failed, the Casa de las Americas Cultural Center President Abel Prieto said.

“The Cuban people did not let themselves be confused. They did not fail Fidel, Raúl or @DiazCanelB. It was a new victory for the Cuban Revolution. #CubaWon,” Abel Prieto live-tweeted.

Regarding hostile campaigns against Cuba´s elections, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel also posted on Twitter “those who ignore and oppose us, those who underestimate and disrespect the strength of our people, I repeat: we do not care about their criteria”.

“We said it yesterday: we trust in our people, who came out to defend the Revolution, despite draconian measures imposed by the United States, despite fierce campaign and calls for abstentionism, Cuba won with a 75.92% turnout, and a 72.10% voted for all,” the Cuban leader stated.

Preliminary data from the National Electoral Council (CEN) indicated the election of all candidates proposed to integrate the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP).

The CEN President Alina Balseiro said in a press conference that, compared to the Family Code, this result is 1.8% higher and 7.36% more than in municipal elections.

She explained that out of the total number of ballots, 90.28% were valid, 6.22% were blank and 3.50% were annulled.
