The National Assembly of the People's Power will elect Cuba's prime minister on Saturday, whose candidate will be proposed by President Miguel Diaz-Canel and whose election will demand an absolute majority of votes from the lawmakers.

It is a post that returns and that was held by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, from February 1959 to December 1976.

The head of Government will be in office for a five-year period and is responsible before Parliament and the president of the Republic, to whom he renders accounts and reports on his/her performance, of the work of the Council of Ministers and its Executive Committee, when indicated.

The National Assembly will also elect the deputy prime ministers, the secretary of the Council of Ministers and other members of the cabinet, also nominated by Diaz-Canel.
