Fraudulent elections in Cuba announced

Newly-elected municipal assemblies will convene across Cuba in two weeks as the island's multitiered-election process advances without word on the future of Fidel Castro. In an order published on the front page of the state newspaper Granma, Cuba's top executive body decreed that the 15,236 municipal assembly members elected on Oct. 21 and in two subsequent runoff votes will meet for the first time Nov. 16. The order was signed by Castro's brother and acting president, Raul. Assembly members later will start choosing candidates for parliamentary elections due next spring.

Elections in Cuba are like in Venezuela, manipulated and fraudulent. Dictators do not dive with elections, dictators dive with hard streets protest. Cuban citizens do not participate in this election; go to the streets to protest like Myanmar does.
