Castro hails Cuba elections as "world-class"

The real question does Jimmy Carter concur?

HAVANA (AP) — Millions of Cubans elected municipal assemblies across the communist-run island Sunday in local elections President Fidel Castro defended as ”the most democratic in the world.”

After voting at a Havana school, Castro told journalists that Cuban elections are impartial and free of fraud.

”This election is the most democratic in the world, there is no doubt,” Castro said. ”No other country has a system like this.”He’s right about no other country having a system like theirs, but that’s about it.

A prescription for disaster
Who watches those who watch the watchers?
