Raul Castro is Cuba's New President
Raul Castro, brother of Cuba's former president, Fidel Castro, became the country's new president Sunday after an election. Raul, 76, was Cuba's former defense minister while his brother was in power, and political experts say it is not surprising that he was elected as president. The election is strictly Communist - there are no other political parties allowed in the country. Also, Raul is said to have been in control of many of the lucrative operations of the country, and because of this, it was no surprise to Cuban political analysts that he won the election.
