Cuba Lures Diaz-Canel into Uncertain Waters

The Nation of Cuba has an uncertain future in which the newest President of the United States of America - Donald Trump - has demanded Cuba end its oppressive activities towards its own people before the US will have sit-down - but the newest of pre-selected leaders for the island nation - Diaz-Canel - is hopeful that his brand of Communism can navigate the uncertain waters.

Whether Diaz-Canel can make a difference in positioning the secluded nation towards success is uncertain, although the Communist Party officiant has thirty years experience at 57-years of age.

Raul Castro himself has hand chosen Diaz-Canel as his successor, almost guaranteeing that the National Assembly votes in his favor with little to no resistance.

It's this very model of control, and that lack of freedoms, in which has caused critique of Cuba from democracies around the world, all of which have expressed concerns for the people of Cuba above all else in future negotiations.

As the world knows, the Obama regime welcomed the Communists of Cuba with open arms, showing no respect for the victims of the Castro terror who have fled to the United States of America over previous decades.

When President Trump took office he stated very bluntly that America would not negotiate with the oppressive governance of Cuba until it made direct changes to how it handles it's domestic policy, once again isolating Communism as it should be.

With Diaz-Canel having spent the better half of his life climbing through the ranks of the Communist Party in Cuba, he shows more of a resemblance to the 86-year-old current leader of Raul Castro than the ideal personification that the western world wants to embrace.

In rolling back Obama-era policies of free travel into Cuba for Americans, the Trump Administration has issued regulations that dramatically affect the economy of Cuba in a hope to encourage such a change, and Diaz-Canel has stated that he desires an open economic relationship with America, so it remains to be seen what changes he would enact.

Building a relationship with the first non-Castro dynasty leader of Cuba could be fruitful for Trump if he's able to negotiate the required changes with Cuba once the last of the Castro leaders have relinquished control.

"There is a tradition in Cuba of strong men at the head of the State," said Cuban watcher Arturo Lopez-Levy of the University of Texas-Rio Grande. “The profile of Miguel Diaz-Canel seems weaker.”

Diaz-Canel seems more liberal in appearances than previous leaders, being an outspoken fan of The Beatles, and more-often-than-not wearing jeans and t-shirts, a far-cry from the military garb-wearing past leadership.

It's also important to note that Diaz-Canel was born after the 1959 Cuban Revolution, making him a more open-minded believer in changing the country to benefit the people.

So far, Diaz-Canel has promised to ease the restrictions on the media and press, and loosen restrictions on an open internet. This alone creates the potential for more Cubans to realize what they could have in a free society versus the limitations of Communism.

In the public eye, Diaz-Canel rarely speaks outside of public addresses, avoiding interviews that could shed light on controversial subject matters, a common theme amongst the secluded nation’s leaders of yesteryear.

First appointed to the Communist Party’s Provincial Secretary in Villa Clara in 1994, locals portray the potential future leader as a common man, who had often made himself visible riding his bicycle through the nearby streets.

Later Diaz-Canel would join the 15-member Political Bureau of the province of Holguin in 2003, which shows his aspirations towards climbing the ranks of power.

In 2009, just three years after Raul Castro seized power from the dying Fidel Castro, Raul would Appoint Diaz-Canel to become the nation's Higher Education Minister.

After three years of service in 2012, Diaz-Canel would become one of the eight men to serve a Vice-Presidency role on the Council of Ministers, and within a year in 2013 made the ultra-powered Council of State.

His aspirations were made known from an early age, say those who know him, and he's always shown a will to better the lives of those around him. While there are some hopes from within the United States that a change in leadership could be beneficial, uncertainty will linger until success is proven.

Only having three years of military experience from 1982 until 1985 as a member of a small anti-aircraft unit, Diaz-Canel will be the first leader of Cuba to not be a die-hard ranking military leader.

Even after the change of power, Raul Castro will remain as the head of the Communist Party and has already drawn-out what he calls a “roadmap” for Diaz-Canel to follow.

After Castro finally passes away is when most believe that Cuba can reform its entire governance, but certainly, a non-Castro leading the way is the first step towards reunification with a world market.
