Vice presidents of municipal state administration bodies to be assigned

Plaza RevWith the aim of strengthening administrative management in every territory, as well as supporting the work of local People’s Power assemblies and their permanent commissions, from February 24-25 vice presidents of municipal state administration bodies will be assigned.

The position of Vice President of the Administration Body was created following the approval of Agreement 8,223 of September 2017, by the Executive Committee of the Council of Ministers of Cuba.

Last December the vice presidents of provincial administration bodies were assigned (not elected), while the same process will be undertaken at a municipal level this February, according to Miriam Brito Sarroca, Secretary of the National Assembly of People’s Power (ANPP).

This decision “is an important step toward guaranteeing the quality and efficiency of our work in every territory,” she stated.

According to the Agreement, the presidents of provincial and municipal assemblies, who also function as the heads of the Provincial and Municipal Administration Boards (except in the provinces of Artemisa and Mayabeque), can delegate some of their responsibilities to the vice president, such as convoking and presiding meetings, as well as organizing, managing and overseeing the work of the Administration Board.

Delegating responsibilities to vice presidents allows for more specialized and professional attention and management of Assemblies and their administration bodies in every territory, stated Carlos Rafael Fuentes León, head of attention to local People’s Power bodies.

“The new vice presidents in municipalities and provinces will help manage and supervise administrative tasks, and in so doing protect the current constitutional order,” stated Fuentes.
