Cuban President Raul Castro has said he will step down at the end of his second term in 2018, following his re-election by the National Assembly.
Castro, who is 81-years- old formally assumed the presidency in 2008, two years after replacing his ailing brother Fidel.
The Communist assembly, whose members ran for office unopposed, also chose Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez as Castro's first vice-president.
Diaz-Canel, who is 52, is widely seen as Raul Castro's successor.
