Holguin, Cuba, Sep 20.- The president of Cuba’s National Electoral Commission (CEN) Alina Balseiro described as satisfactory the ongoing nomination of candidates to delegates of local governments, as part of the first stage of general elections on the island.
Fifteen days after the process kicked off throughout the country, all provinces have reported encouraging results as to the development of neighbor meetings and the attendance by the voters, said Balseiro, who said that the ongoing process is the most significant stage prior to upcoming October 21 local elections.
More than 70 percent of the scheduled meetings have already been held, said the official in statements to the Cuban News Agency, as she toured this eastern Cuban province.
During the current stage, over 50 thousand nomination meetings are scheduled to take place with neighbors openly proposing their future representatives at local government offices.
Balseiro, who attended several nomination meetings in Holguin, also said that over the next few days, voter registrations will be posted on public places as part of actions that make the Cuban elections a transparent process. (ACN).
