Look for biographies of the leaders (in Spanish) at CIDOB website. See also the Cuban Political Leaders main page.

The Integrated Revolutionary Organizations (ORI) were formed in Jul 1961 by the merger of the Revolutionary Movement July 26th (MR-26-7, led by Fidel Castro), the People's Socialist Party (PSP, communist, led by Blas Roca) and the Revolutionary Directory March 13th (led by Faure Chomón). The ORI became on 26 Mar 1962 the United Party of the Cuban Socialist Revolution (PURSC), which became the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) on 3 Oct 1965.
