Cuba's lawmakers say Miguel Díaz-Canel is the sole candidate to succeed Raúl Castro, bringing the family's decades-long rule to an end.
Raúl Castro took over as president from his ailing brother Fidel in 2006.
The National Assembly, the country's legislative body, will vote on the nomination, with the result announced on Thursday.
Raúl Castro is expected to remain a powerful influence in the communist state even after he steps down.
