Evo Morales will be a candidate in Bolivia, despite having lost the consultation on the re-election

In the midst of criticism and protests from the opposition, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) of Bolivia, signed up Tuesday evening to the candidates, Evo Morales and Alvaro Garcia to opt-in to a fourth term in the October elections of 2019. The opponents were seeking that the electoral authority would prevent this registration based on the Constitution, which limits the amount of times that the first few presidents can be reelected, and the result of the referendum of February 21, 2016, which rejected a reform proposal by the ruling and intended to remove the limitation constituciona on the reelecciónl.

Two members of the Electoral Tribunal voted according to this argument, and against the recording of Morales and García Linera. But the other four vowels in the authorized, which was qualified by the main opposition candidate, former president Carlos Mesa, as a “wound of death to democracy”. Dinamobet Other opposition leaders spoke of a “coup” institutional and the beginning of a “dictatorship” in Bolivia.

The government justifies the new postulation of their candidates, who rule the country since 2006, in a ruling of the Constitutional Court, which established the suspension of constitutional constraints to re-election with the argument that the same with respect to the “human right” of every citizen to elect and be elected. Evo Morales has stated that he lost the referendum in 2016 because of a “lie” regarding his relations with a former girlfriend that was processed for illicit enrichment. García Linera reminded recently that the difference in this referendum was very close (51% said “no”and 49% “yes” to the re-election), so that is not working “against the people”, and, in an interview with this newspaper, said that for the popular movement and the indigenous dispense Evo “would be a political suicide”, as this charismatic leader embodies the process of accumulation of forces that the left in bolivia has been conducting since 2006.

Several street protests and marches of long-term are being carried out to reject that decision and tomorrow is called a work stoppage in the main cities against the participation of Morales in an election in which-by what we know up to now - will face seven fronts opponents.
