Cuba’s Constituency Election Commissions will place at public places photos and biographies of over 37,000 candidates to the October 21 municipal elections that the First Vice President Raul Castro convened in July.
This will help Cuban voters choose the best on the first round on the 21st and at the runoffs on the 28th if there were a tie or if neither candidate scored 50 percent plus one of the votes.
Also on display are the list of constituents 16 years and older, with legal capacity to vote to correct any mistake or omission in time.
Maria Esther Reus, president of the National Election Commission, said the ongoing process attests to democracy, clearness and support of the leadership of the Revolution.
Reus said that 90,000 election Judges will help elect 15,236 delegates for an equal number of circumscriptions that will make up 169 Municipal Assemblies of the People’s Power for 30 months.
