The Cuban legislative election of 2010 to the National Assembly of People's Power was held in Cuba on January 18, 2010. This was the second democratic elections since Fidel Castro had reformed the Cuban constitution to include free elections, freedom of speech and other democratic elements in favour of having the United States lifting the economic sanctions on Cuba.
The election marked a turning point in Cuban politics. The right-wing Cuban Democratic Coalition (Coalición Demócrata Cubana) consisting of the Christian Democratic Party, Democratic Solidarity Party and the Cuban Liberal Union received 45.7 percent of the votes, thus securing the majority of the seats in the National Assembly. For the first time since 1959 the Communist Party lost its mandate to govern, thus leading to a government based on the parties of the Christian Democratic Party with Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas of the Christian Democratic Party as Prime Minister.
