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 current court dates to 1973 and replaced the earlier Supreme Court of Cuba c. 1898.

Composition of Court[edit]

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.
