On behalf of the CPC Central Committee and in his own name, he extends warm congratulations to Diaz-Canel and through him to the new central leadership of the PCC.
The Eighth Congress of the PCC has drawn a blueprint for Cuba's socialist cause. Diaz-Canel's election reflects the trust and expectations of all PCC members and the Cuban people.
