Cuba: National elections took place in an orderly manner

Havana, Mar 27 (Prensa Latina) The president of the National Electoral Council (CEN) of Cuba, Alina Balseiro, stressed on Monday that the national elections took place in a favorable environment, with order and discipline.

In a televised appearance, the official explained that 90.28 percent of the total number of ballots cast on Sunday were valid, 6.22 percent were blank and 3.50 percent were annulled.

Balseiro informed that 6,164,876 voters cast their votes, a figure which represents 75.92 percent of more than 8,120,000 voters summoned to the polls.

The CEN president pointed out that the preliminary results of the vote ‘validate the election of all 470 candidates proposed as lawmakers in the National People’s Power Assembly (Parliament), with more than 50 percent of valid votes.’

She noted that the turnout in these elections was higher than in previous ones, particularly in comparison with the referendum on the Family Code, 1.8 percent higher and 7.36 percent higher than in the municipal elections.

The national electoral process, she added, culminates with the constitution of the National Assembly, which will be in charge of electing the president and vice president of the Republic on April 19.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel tweeted that Sunday’s elections were a revolutionary victory and a victory of the Cuban people.
