And Miguel Diaz-Canel, a man born after the 1959 revolution, was elected president by the National Assembly.

After years of having a Castro hold the presidential office in Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel is changing the game for the island country after being elected president on Wednesday.

Cubans said they expected their new president to deliver improvements to the island's economy, which remains stagnant and dominated by inefficient, unproductive state-run enterprises that are unable to provide salaries high enough to cover basic needs.

U.S lawmakers say that unfortunately those who live on the secluded island nation are unlikely to see their lives improve.

"We are disappointed that the Cuban government opted to silence independent voices and maintain its repressive monopoly on power rather than allow its people a meaningful choice through free, fair and competitive elections", Nauert said.

"He couldn't take it and left", Castro said in response. But Thursday, Fidel Castro's younger brother Raul stepped down. A new generation is coming into power. "I think that's definitely the sense in the population". Vice President Mike Pence tweeted at Castro that the US won't rest until Cuba "has free & fair elections, political prisoners are released & the people of Cuba are finally free!"

Americans are no longer allowed to do business with over 180 entities, which are believed to be "under the control of, or acting for or on behalf of, the Cuban military, intelligence, or security services or personnel with which direct financial transactions would disproportionately benefit such services or personnel at the expense of the Cuban people or private enterprise in Cuba". "It means that for us Cubans that our Cuban people will continue under the same dictatorship, will continue the misery, the repressions, the violations of human rights". Castro said he foresees the white-haired electronics engineer serving two five-year terms as leader of the Cuban government and taking the helm of the Communist Party, the country's ultimate authority, also for two five-year terms, when Castro leaves the powerful position in 2021.
