The People's Supreme Court (Tribunal Supremo Popular) is the highest body of judicial power in Cuba. It is elected by, and accountable to,[clarification needed] the National Assembly of People's Power. The judiciary are independent from the executive branch,[how?] as all judges on every level are elected by the National Assembly; the provincial judges by provincial assemblies and the municipal judges by municipal assemblies.

The People's Supreme Court comprises a president, a vice president, and all professional and lay judges and is structured as follows: the Whole, the Council of State, criminal, civil, administrative, labor, crimes-against-the-state and military courts.
