Raul Castro Meets with Santiago Voters
Cuba's First Vice President Raul Castro conversed on Monday with residents in El Cobre, electoral district seven, 12 miles from Santiago, which nominated President Fidel Castro as candidate.

The vice president highlighted the modest origin and high cultural level of those proposed by that district, and recalled that he is from that eastern region.

Raul Castro was born between the current boundaries of Santiago de Cuba and Holguin and he spent most of his childhood and youth in this region of the island.

He noted that also except for Fidel Castro, none of those nominated in this district were been born during the attack on Moncada Garrison on July 26, 1953, which action marked the beginning of armed actions against Fulgencio Batista.

The vice president sent greetings to voters and praised the quality of those candidates in this district, which will elect deputies and delegates to the 14 People's Power Provincial Assemblies on January 20.
