Cuba is heading towards getting rid of the Castro family

With voters heading for election funds in Havana, Havana has taken its first step towards getting rid of President Raul Castro's 86-year-old rule, a move toward ending an undisputed 60-year rule for him and his brother Fidel.

The five-year-old election will allow 1265 members of local councils, the first since the death of Cuban leader Fidel Castro in December 2016.

The list of future members of the National Assembly includes members of the leadership of the Cuban Communist Party, including Raul Castro, the Secretary-General of the party and the figures of the historic revolution that is still alive. More than half of the members, or about 322, are women.

The new parliament will later appoint 31 members of the State Council, which in turn will elect the new Cuban president in April.

First Vice President Miguel Diaz Canel, 57, is expected to succeed President Raul Castro, who is celebrating his 10th anniversary this year.

The opposition, which is deprived of candidates and can not reach the media, protests against these elections, which it considers biased and regrets the lack of a direct presidential election.
