Castros Relinguise Long-Held Power, DIaz-Canel Now Cuban President

Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez was named the new president of Cuba on Thursday, marking a generational shift for the island long ruled by Fidel Castro and his younger brother Raul. In his inaugural speech, however, the 57-year-old Diaz-Canel praised the revolutionaries of the Castro generation.
The communist revolution in Cuba "carries on and will carry on," he said. The relatively unknown Diaz-Canel previously served as a minister of higher education and vice-president.
Addressing the parliament on Thursday, Diaz-Canel lauded his predecessor Raul Castro. The 86-year-old younger brother of the late Fidel Castro is set to hold on to power by remaining the head of the Communist Party, at least until his scheduled retirement in 2021.

Raul Castro handpicked Diaz-Canel to become his successor, and the decision was recently confirmed by Cuba's rubber-stamp parliament, the National Assembly, with 99.83 percent of the vote. In state-run media, Diaz-Canel is presented as a loyal and stable leader ready to provide continuity to the Communist-ruled island.

Raul Castro also commented on the halting thaw between Cuba and the US, saying that Donald Trump's election victory set bilateral ties back again. The backslide is characterized by an aggressive and threatening tone, he said.

Previously, the US said it had no intention to change its policies towards the island.
"The United States has no expectation that the Cuban people will see any greater freedoms under Castro's handpicked successor," a White House spokeswoman said.
