Cuba's Communist Party chose the old guard to oversee a new economic course for the Caribbean island on Tuesday, selecting President Raul Castro and First Vice President Jose Machado Ventura to lead the country's highest political body. The choice of Castro, who replaces his older brother Fidel Castro as first secretary of the ruling party's Central Committee, was expected. REUTERS/Enrique De La Osa (CUBA - Tags: POLITICS)
