Cuba: Cuba’s president adopts leftist strategy to increase his ‘contact with the people’

Following the lead of other leftist leaders in Latin America, Cuba’s Miguel Díaz-Canel has announced that he will use YouTube, the internet and television to increase his “contact with the people.”

Díaz-Canel told a meeting of the legislative National Assembly that his office will open a YouTube channel and a website. He said he also has proposed a new TV channel to allow government agencies to offer audiences information “about what concerns them and the work of each organization,” the official Granma newspaper reported.

“Those of us who have decision-making powers and are public servants owe coherent and direct information to the people, and then we should all do what Fidel did by himself,” Díaz-Canel said.
