Daniel Rafuls describes the Cuban political system at UCI
Dr. C. Daniel Rafuls Pineda, professor of Socio-Political Theory at the University of Havana (UH), presented a historical review of the Cuban political system this Thursday afternoon at the University of Informatics Sciences (UCI).
Rafuls made an analysis of the Cuban Revolution and an exposition on the previous Constitutions of the Republic, with regard to the constitutional referendum to be held next February 24.
The perceptive speaker of the UH also outlined aspects included in the constitution, such as the President’s term of office, the role of the delegate enhanced in the municipalities, and, among other contributions, the election of the governor.
He considered that direct voting in other countries is part of an excluding and representative political system, while in the Island it is participatory. In this sense, he stressed popular participation as a distinctive element for the new Constitution.
The also former Cuban State Security agent of the 1990s shared anecdotes about his difficult mission in the United States.
In his exchange with the audience, he especially encouraged the young university students, to be prepared - he said - for the greatest challenge that technology poses.
The meeting, organized by School 2 in the Villena Hall of the Rubén Martínez Villena school building, brought together professors of Social Sciences and from the Preparation for Defense department in our institution
