At the proposal of the President of the Republic Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, the Council of State adopted the following resolutions regarding the vice-prime ministry and the Communication Ministry.
The Council of State of Cuba has relieved of his duties as Vice Prime Minister of the Republic comrade Roberto Morales Ojeda, former Public Health minister, on the occasion of his transition to professional activity in the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Cuba.
The nation's executive body has also promoted to Vice Prime Minister of the Republic to replace Morales Ojeda, Jorge Luis Perdomo Di-Lella, who had been serving as Minister of Communications since July 2018. Comrade Perdomo is an engineer in electronics and telecommunications by profession.
Similarly, to replace Perdomo in the position of Minister of Communications, the Council of State has named Mayra Arevich Marín, who held the responsibility of Executive President of the Telecommunications Company (ETECSA) since 2011, to lead the Ministry. Arevich Marin is an engineer in telecommunications by profession.
