President Miguel Díaz-Canel participates in Commission No.3

“We do not need good people to become cadres, we need the best, the best comrades, those who have more revolutionary qualifications, more ideological qualifications and more professional qualifications, the charisma, work and experience to handle the principle processes."

With this orientation, President of the Republic Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez began his participation in the analysis that took place during the 8th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba this Friday, in the third session of Commission No. 3, in which the Cadre Policy was analyzed, an issue that is critical to the Party's work.

All the issues to be discussed here, he said, are the country’s issues, those that are on the people’s agenda, adding, "Having the cadres is the greatest challenge to fulfilling the purposes and projections of this Congress."

The profound, open, critical debate among delegates was conducted by Party Central Committee Secretariat member Abelardo Álvarez Gil, head of its Department of Organization and Cadre Policy.

The Cadre Policy, Díaz-Canel emphasized, is a management system, the Cadre Policy is managed, directed, it has components, procedures that are closely related, and when they are not followed, the conduction of the process is disrupted.

On the other hand, he reflected on how to act when a cadre makes a mistake. Any of us can make a mistake, but if we demonstrate the ability to resolve such a situation, this is also a sign that we can be trusted, he pointed out.

The first secretary of the Young Communists League, Diosvany Acosta, also participated in the sobering debate, referring to the support and follow-up that young people need. Party leaders must know and understand them, as they assume different responsibilities as part of their preparation.

Susely Morfa Gonzalez, a member of the Matanzas Provincial Party Bureau, noted that the report presented to serve as a basis for this commission’s work intrinsically includes the thinking of Fidel and Raul, as well as the dialectical, innovative perspective of younger generations on changing the way these issues are addressed.

"This is not a renewal for the sake of renewal; this is not a problem of age," it is a matter that involves positive action to guarantee the proper transitioning of individuals through different responsibilities, she stated.

In the more than twenty remarks and opinions shared, reflecting experiences in many provinces and organizations around the country, issues emerged related to the following: acts of corruption involving cadres at different levels; the flagrant violation committed when a cadre involved in such an event is subsequently placed in another leadership position; superficial evaluations of cadres; the movements of cadres from one position to another without verification of their previous work; the need to be combative in the face of poor performances; and the ongoing ideological development of cadres.

Commission No.3, chaired by Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, is composed of 94 delegates, including President Díaz-Canel; Army Corps General Álvaro López Miera, Minister of the Revolutionary Armed Forces; and Miriam Nicado García, Rector of the University of Havana, all members of the Political Bureau.
