Parliamentary elections will be held in Cuba on 11 March 2018 to elect members of the National Assembly of People’s Power, alongside provincial elections. President Raúl Castro will not be seeking a new term, and a new president will be elected by the National Assembly.
The 612 members of the National Assembly of People’s Power are elected in single-member constituencies. Candidates are required to receive at least 50% of the valid votes to be elected. If no candidate passes the 50% threshold, the seat is left vacant, although the Council of State may opt to hold a special election to fill the vacancy.
