Expectations in Bolivia for calling new elections


By Jorge PetinaudLa Paz, Nov 10 (Prensa Latina) The announcement of the constitutional president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, of new elections, in this governmental city today generates expectations about the arrival of the pacification of the country.

"I make a call, respect for the family, respect for property, respect for authorities, all social sectors, all we have in Bolivia is the heritage of the Bolivian people," said the president as an expression of his peacekeeping will.In support of that point of view, the Catholic Church today called for peace and harmony in Bolivia.

The integration of a Constitutional Court with new members is of interest, for which the Legislative Assembly is convened with a view to the appointment of these officials and also those of the departmental electoral bodies.

However, on the other hand, the second most voted party in the elections of October 20, Comunidad Ciudadana, expressed in a statement its rejection of that initiative.

"Citizen Community, requires the Plurinational Legislative Assembly, to convene a great national agreement tomorrow, with the essential participation of political, civic and social sectors to agree on a new Plurinational Electoral Body," the text states.

The alliance of neoliberal policies demands a timing of the election, including new actors, culminating in the possession of the new elected authorities on January 22, 2020.

It also assumes a radical stance regarding Morales and the vice president, Alvaro Garcia Linera, when considering that their presence must be vetoed among the new candidates.

At the same time, reading the CC statement, his presidential candidate, Carlos Mesa, insisted that unemployment and mobilizations be maintained throughout the country.

In this context, around the political heart of Bolivia, Plaza Murillo, opposition clash groups maintain pressure measures along with other protesters.

It is also reported that from Santa Cruz and Potosi, reinforcements made up of thousands of miners and other violent groups at the service of the opposition right are heading towards La Paz.

The aggressive nature of these forces was confirmed this Saturday, when irregular groups set fire to the houses of the governors of Chuquisaca and Oruro, Morales' sister in that city, and in attacks and threats against journalists.

National television showed how the capture of the director of a community radio station was captured in the government city and the opponents tied him to a tree because he was a supporter of the Socialism Movement.

According to the Pat channel, also, the intervention of the Ombudsman's Office allowed 30 workers from the state-owned Bolivia TV channel and the Patria Nueva Network, on the radio, to leave the building that serves as their headquarters without the protesters damaging them. Previously, a phone call from those who maintained the fence, called on those media workers to cease their transmissions, under the threat of entering the building.

"Your life is at risk, if you do not cut the signal at this time people are going to enter," said the representative of the so-called vigilance committee, in a phone call. .

In reaction to this situation of threats and violence, in the city of El Alto and interdepartmental roads, supporters of the Movement to Socialism maintain the blockades initiated yesterday in rejection of what they call a coup d'etat and in defense of the democratic order.

That is the atmosphere that is breathed this Sunday in the governmental capital of Bolivia.
