People's Party (Cuba)

Résumé
The People's Party (Partido Popular) was a short-lived political party in Cuba. It was founded on November 7, 1900 by Diego Vicente Tejera (who had formed the Cuban Socialist Party the preceding year). The People's Party sought to mobilize the working class of Cuba into political action. However the party failed to make any significant political breakthrough. Tejera took part in the Constituent Convention of 1901 as a delegate from the People's Party. The government barred the party from contesting the 1901 elections by issuing a demand that it produce a register showing that it had 5,000 members in each of Cuba's major cities and 500 in several smaller towns. The demand was issued just two hours before the closure of the registration offices for the elections. Needless to say, the party failed to produce such a register in such a short time-span and could not contest. Tejera denounced the action of the government as electoral fraud
