Havana, October 22 (RHC)-- The Council of State met Wednesday night at the Capitol, in a session presided by Esteban Lazo Hernández, with the participation of

The Council of State also evaluated the proposal to hold the delegate's accountability meetings for the remainder of this year, and in this regard, agreed not to hold them, given the country's health and hygiene situation, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact it has had on the economy.

The Council of State, at the proposal of the President of the Popular Supreme Court, also agreed to extend the current mandate of the lay judges until the new law on that institution is approved, and to carry out the next election process following its provisions.

It was also decided to make some adjustments to the regulations regarding using the "Golden Star of Labor" medal, which is the symbol representing the title of "Labor Hero of the Republic of Cuba.
