HAVANA (AP) -- Cuba's parliament has named Raul Castro to a new five-year term as president and rising star Miguel Diaz-Canel his first vice president.
The 52-year-old Diaz-Canel is now the first in line to succeed Castro. He is the highest-ranking Cuban official who didn't directly participate in the 1959 Cuban revolution.
The selections were reported by state media Sunday.
