Cuba’s State Council has called today for general elections to elect delegates to municipal and provincial assemblies, and to legislators to the National People’s Power Assembly (ANPP).

‘The elections to select the delegates to the municipal assemblies of the People’s Power for the two and half year term will be held on October 22nd, 2017 in a first round,’ Granma newspaper website posted today.

The second round will be on October 29th in those constituencies where no candidate obtains more than 50 percent of the valid votes cast, he said.

According to the information, the date to choose -for five years- the delegates to the provincial assemblies and the legislators to the ANPP’ will be arranged at the appropriate time.’
