Cuba's Raul Castro announces retirement in 5 years

Published: 02.25.13, 08:08 / Israel News

Raul Castro announced Sunday that he will step down as Cuba's president in 2018 following a final five-year term, for the first time putting a date on the end of the Castro era. He tapped rising star Miguel Diaz-Canel as his top lieutenant and first in the line of succession.

The 81-year-old Castro also said he hopes to establish two-term limits and age caps for political offices including the presidency, an astonishing prospect for a nation led by Castro or his older brother Fidel since their 1959 revolution. (AP)
