“Arnold August explores Cuba's unique form of democracy, presenting a detailed and balanced analysis of Cuba's electoral process and the state's functioning between elections.

August shows that people's participation in politics and society
is not limited to a singular, U.S.- centric understanding of democracy."

"Why should some people walk barefoot, so that others can travel in luxurious cars? Why should some live for thirty-five years, so that others can live for seventy years? Why should some be miserably poor, so that others can be hugely rich? I speak on behalf of the children in the world who do not have a piece of bread. I speak on behalf of the sick who have no medicine, of those whose rights to life and human dignity have been denied.” Fidel Castro at the UN in 1979



Casting doubt upon the Cuban political system
is a fundamental pillar of the US-led anti-Cuban campaign, often neglecting to mention that elections take place every five years and there have been turnouts of over 95% in every election since 1976. In addition, a number of constitutional reforms have taken place in Cuba since the 1959 revolution in an effort to improve the governments responsiveness to the needs and views of the population.

Elections in Cuba have two phases, firstly, delegates are elected to the Municipal Assembly every two and a half years and then secondly, from this deputies are elected to the National Assembly every five years. The Assembly is the country's highest legislative power.

From the members of the National Assembly [Asemblea del Poder popular], the Council of State is elected. It acts on behalf of the National  Assembly between sessions. The National Assembly also appoints the Council of Ministers, the government's highest executive and administrative body. In the event of a Presidential succession in Cuba, it will be the National Assembly that elects the new President. more
