Cuba dissidents present slate of candidates for 2017 election

Opposition leaders said Thursday they plan to present a slate of candidates for next year’s legislative and local elections, an act of political defiance in communist-governed Cuba. The move, technically illegal in this one-party state, comes the same year that President Raul Castro leaves office, a post he has held since February 2008. Manuel Cuesta Morua, spokesman for the opposition activists who are technically banned but tolerated in practice, said that around 90 candidates would be put forward, to promote “free and pluralistic” elections on the island.
