Spain celebrates the decision of Evo Morales to repeat elections in Bolivia

The Government has celebrated on Sunday the decision of the president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, to repeat the general elections in the country, and has expressed hope that this initiative "restores confidence in the Bolivian electoral process."

Through a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Government has encouraged Bolivian political actors to "work in institutional and peaceful ways" to make it possible, with this new call, "confidence in the electoral process as a channel for democratic expression of the popular will. "

Thus, Spain has asked all actors to "refrain from acts that can promote the division between Bolivians and incite violence" that has already caused three deaths and hundreds of wounded.

In addition, the Government of Pedro Sánchez has underlined its "full willingness to support these efforts to the extent required."

The call for the repetition of the general elections and the appointment of new members of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal in charge of supervising said elections is in line with the preliminary conclusions of the audit of the Organization of American States (OAS).

These conclusions, released this Sunday, recommend a new electoral process with new electoral authorities.
