Cuba’s new constitution: window-dressing for single-party rule?


Cuba’s revised constitution amounts to window-dressing for continued single-party rule, some of the island’s democratic and civil society voices will tell a Washington forum next week.

An Organization of American States (OAS) conference on “The New Cuban Constitution and the Inter-American Democratic Charter” will hear from Laritza Diversent, director of the Cubalex Center for Legal Information; Leandro Querido, executive director of Electoral Transparency Latin America; Jaime Aparicio, former president of the Inter-American Juridical Committee; Rosa Paya (above), promoter of the Cuba Decide campaign; and OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro.

3 p.m. February 12, 2019

Venue: OAS, 17th and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, D.C.
