Cuba's Castro not healthy enough to campaign for elections
Fidel Castro said Wednesday he is not ready physically to speak to Cuba's masses in person and will not campaign for Sunday's parliamentary elections.

"I am not physically able to speak directly to the citizens of the municipality where I was nominated for our elections next Sunday," the ailing 81-year-old wrote in an essay published Wednesday by state news media.

Castro's latest essay focused on criticizing President Bush, but included references to the Cuban leader's health.

It was published on the front pages of state-run newspapers a day after Castro met for more than two hours with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who said he though Castro appeared healthy enough to return to politics.

"I think Fidel is ready to take to take over his historic political role in this globalized world, in humanity," Lula da Silva told reporters as he left Cuba late Tuesday.
