Fidel Castro Elected Delegate to Cuban Communist Party Congress

HAVANA – Former President Fidel Castro was elected as a delegate to the 7th Cuban Communist Party Congress, set for April, state-run media reported Thursday.

The 89-year-old Fidel, who ceded power to younger brother Raul Castro in 2006, will be a delegate to the communist conclave in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba.

Fidel Castro “embodies the highest principles of a revolutionary” and is a “man of deep convictions and visionary ideas,” Communist Party daily Granma said in a front-page story.

Castro held the post of party first secretary until the organization’s last congress in 2011.

At that prior meeting, Fidel Castro was replaced in the post of first general secretary by Raul.

Also at its last congress, the Communist Party approved the plan to “update” the country’s economic model undertaken by Raul Castro once he came to power.
