Cuban Electoral Authorities Ready for October 21st Municipal Elections

Havana, Cuba, Oct 17.- Cuban electoral authorities continue to prepare to successfully lead the upcoming October 21 municipal elections, said the vice-president of the National Electoral Commission, Rosa Charroo.

Electoral authorities are meeting an intense agenda this week, particularly the members of voting stations, since they are currently taking specific training for the elections, in tune with what the Cuban Constitution stipulates, Charroo told PL news agency.

Over 190 thousand people, who were selected on their merits as electoral authorities, are studying Law 72 of 1992, which regulates the electoral process, following a voting drill on October 14.

The municipal elections are scheduled for October 21 with a second round on October 28 in those constituencies where none of the candidates gets more than 50 percent of the valid votes.

More than 8.5 million Cubans will cast their ballots at the country’s general elections, called to vote delegates to municipal and provincial assemblies, and deputies to the National Parliament. (ACN).
