New Prime Minister of Cuba Annointed, the First Since 1976
The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel offered the Cuban Prime Minister position to Manuel Marrero Cruz and he said yes. The tourism Minister will now be the New Prime Minister of Cuba, the first in more than four decades.
The Prime Minister position in Cuba was ceased in the year 1976 by Fidel Castro, the nation's then leader.
The Prime Minister position was brought back by the new Constitution of the Cuban nation. The new Constitution had taken effect earlier in the year.
Marrero, 56, will be assuming many of the responsibilities of the nation's president.
According to Cubadebate (online news site run by the nation of Cuba), the leader of the government of Cuba will become the administrative assistant of the president of the nation.
On the other hand, experts say that the event is highly cosmetic because of the presence of the only two decision making bodies in the country. The decision for Cuba is made primarily by the Communist Party in Cuba and the military of the nation of Cuba.
The appointment of Marrero as the New Prime Minister of Cuba was authorized unanimously by the members in the National Assembly held last Saturday.
According to the description of the newspaper controlled by the state, Marrero was described as someone with a political-identity and had started his reign in the tourism industry of the country of Cuba. The tourism industry of the nation of Cuba is one of the leading sources of foreign relations of the country.
In the year 2000, Marrero was given the post as the leader of the Gaviota tourism group that is under the control of the country's military force. Hotels in this are under US sanction of the Donald Trump administration.
Marrero was given the chance to become the tourism minister of the nation in 2004 during the leadership of Fidel Castro. Ever since the start of his leadership in the tourism of Cuba, the sector's performance had increased to a considerable amount.
There are still uncertainties if he will continue his responsibilities as the tourism minister of Cuba.
After being dubbed as the New Prime Minister of Cuba, Díaz-Canel sees a positive outcome because of the expertise of Marrero in handling foreign relationships, especially with investors. He sees the honesty, hard work, and loyalty for the Cuban Communist Party of Marrero as a reason for his appointment.
Manuel Marrero Cruz or Manuel Marrero was born on July 11, 1963. He is a politician from Cuba who will be serving the nation as its seventeenth Prime Minister of the country. The Prime Minister position in the country was postponed from 1976 to 2019. The last Prime Minister of the Cuban Nation was Fidel Castro in 1976.
In the past forty-three years, the Cuban Prime Minister position was left unoccupied since 1976. In the long term, Marrero had served the country as its tourism minister to improve the tourism sector of the country and he had not failed to accomplish his goals for the tourism sector of Cuba.
Marrero was previously working as an architect before he started his career in politics. He had also attained a position as a colonel in the military force of Cuba.
