You’re buried in debt. Your credit cards have been canceled. The landlord or bank are threatening to evict you. Your car is already in the process of being repossessed. And you (crazily or stupidly?) only think about changing the furniture in your place. This is exactly what will happen in Cuba on October 10th.
On this Thursday a special session of the National Assembly of People’s Power will appoint the leading positions of a new government. In another pirouette, which is devoid of any real elections, the position of prime minister will be resurrected, whom the President will appoint, as well as provincial governors, while the State Council will be cut in size, from 31 to 21 members.
This alleged change in government will be a change (if that) which is not only unable to raise the population’s hopes and expectations, but also useless (even before its creation) in the face of the serious problems Cuba is facing today.
