|Infante is an over-70-year-old citizen hospitalized in the oncology ward of the Vladimir Ilich Lenin General Hospital in this eastern city. However, her health condition did not prevent her from casting her ballot at a special voting station set up in the health institution.
Mirta, a citizen from the municipality of Guardalavaca, was hospitalized January 30, but she said she always knew she would be able to participate in the electoral process underway today throughout the island.
Alberto Ruz, 73, is another patient who, after casting his ballot also at the hospital, said that Cuban elections are marked by their crystal clear transparency. “Here there are no tricks, but transparency, quite different from what used to happen before the triumph of the Revolution; in those times, the acting rulers’ money and ambition would determine the course of the elections,” he pointed out.
Mirta and Alberto are two of many Holguin citizens, who are casting their ballots at nearly 3 thousand voting stations set up in the province to elect 102 delegates to the provincial government and 55 Parliament deputies.
