The government will await the results of a meeting within the Organization of American States (OAS) to determine if it recognizes and supports the interim president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, said the Minister of the Presidency, Víctor Morales, who added that the political situation, after the resignation of former President Evo Morales, takes place in “a confusing constitutional procedure” which has to be clarified in the OAS.
Last week, from New York, President Carlos Alvarado called for respect for democratic institutions in Bolivia, without announcing his support to President Áñez.
In an interview with the CNN news network, the President also said that the government urges the OAS to analyze the situation that triggered the political crisis in that country after the elections of last October 20th. In addition, he again made clear the country’s position of not seeing with good eyes that it was the armed forces who suggested the departure of former president Evo Morales.
Alvarado also supported a dialogue between the political forces and put first the security and welfare of Bolivians in the face of violent demonstrations.
