Cuba - Leadership

Cuba is a totalitarian communist state headed by General Raul Castro and a cadre of party loyalists. In 2006 Fidel Castro suffered a health crisis, and temporarily handed over the reigns of power to his younger brother Raul. At that time, it was widely expected that Fidel's death was eminent, that Raul's tenure would be brief, and that revolutionary Cuba would soon disintegrate. By 2013 Fidel remained in the land of the living, Raul's announced intention to remain President through 2018 raised no eyebrows, and there was every indication of a smooth handover of power from the "historical generation" to a much younger successor generation.
