OVER 98 PERCENT TURNOUT FOR CUBAN POLLS

Cubans voted to choose municipal delegates in the country's only nationwide elections, with a turnout of 98.3 percent, the official newspaper Granma said Tuesday. More than 7.1 million citizens voted by secret ballot in Sunday's poll to choose 14,346 delegates for 169 municipal People's Power assemblies.

A Communist Party Politburo member said the success of the poll and the high turnout were a ``flat denial to all the campaigns against our system and to those who try to question our democracy.''
