Cuba holds municipal elections as post-Castro era nears

Cuba has held its first municipal elections a year after the death of Fidel Castro.

The new national assembly is expected to select a successor for 86-year-old Raul Castro, who has announced that he will step down from power after his second five-year term as president ends in February, giving the Castro era an official expiration date of 2018.
