In Cuba there is a legislative power, the Assembly, which serves to legitimize the regime. We ask ourselves: How are its members chosen? What is the memberhip criteria of said assembly? What are the levels of participation in electoral processes? What are the nomination commissions? What is the role of the Communist Party? We will be talking about these and other questions with Raudiel Peña.
