Cuban FM describes U.S. electoral system as corrupt, anti-democratic

Havana, Mar 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez on Tuesday described the electoral system in the United States as corrupt and anti-democratic, which limits the rights of minorities.

On Twitter, Bruno Rodriguez pointed out that 150 bills were submitted in 32 states of the union in January 2023 to restrict access to vote. On Monday, Bruno Rodriguez strongly rejected statements made by Brian Nichols, Undersecretary of the State Department for Latin America, in which he questioned legitimacy of Sunday´s national elections.

Cuba has little or nothing to learn from the archaic and elitist U.S. system, where money rules and two political parties take turns governing the same minority, the Cuban foreign minister tweeted, while he described Nichols’ comments as unacceptable for being interfering and misleading.

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel also responded to the attacks against Cuba: As for those who ignore and oppose us, those who underestimate and disrespect our people´s strength, I repeat: we do not care about your criteria, Díaz-Canel live-tweeted.

Sunday´s elections in Cuba allowed over 8,120,000 people (75.92%) to vote for 470 deputies to the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP).

According to Díaz-Canel, the elections were described as a revolutionary victory and a victory of the Cuban people.
