Cuba Appoints Non-Castro to Communist Party

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Cuba made significant changes to its leadership on Tuesday, appointing someone other than a member of the Castro family to the second-highest position in the Communist Party. Raul Castro was named first secretary of the party, and Fidel Castro was not included in the leadership for the first time since the party's creation in 1965. Are we seeing the start of a new era in Cuba?

New York Times reporter Randal C. Archibold discusses these recent political changes, and what they might mean for Cuba.
