Raúl Castro announces his retirement as head of the Communist Party of Cuba

The Communist Party of Cuba has confirmed this Friday that Raúl Castro will cease to be its secretary general, after ten years at the head of the formation, within the framework of the celebration of the VII Congress held in Havana.

During the presentation of his report, Castro highlighted the progress made in the last five years, but also recognized the need to “increase dynamism” in solving the problems the island faces.

According to the party’s website, Castro has shown his “satisfaction” knowing that he is leaving the leadership of the country “to a group of prepared leaders, hardened by decades of experience” and “committed to the ethics of the Revolution.”
