Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro reads a ballot paper before casting his vote during the Cuban Communist Party (PCC) 6th congress at his residence in Havana on April 18. Cuba's Communist Party approved landmark economic reforms on Monday and voted for new leaders in a key party congress to chart Cuba's future, state-run media reported. The Caribbean island's highest political body selected new First and Second Secretaries, its Central Committee and powerful Political Bureau, but the results would not be disclosed until Tuesday's closing session, Cuban television said.
