MAS candidate questions programmatic model of rivals in Bolivia
La Paz, Aug 23 (Prensa Latina) The presidential candidate for the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), Luis Arce, stated that the political and economic model of the de facto president and presidential candidate of Bolivia does not favour the majority.
On his official website, the president added that he does not contribute to the strengthening of institutions or the democratic system of the plurinational state either.
The prominent former Minister of Economy added that the other candidate for President, Carlos Mesa, who was formerly Vice President and former President, does not constitute an alternative to the liberalism with which he governs the transitional government either.
Mesa, the most important businessman of the PAT television network, ran Bolivia until 2005, left office with a foreign debt of nearly 60 percent of the Gross Domestic Product and the wages and purchasing power of the workers totally reduced, he said.
His campaign promises were not fulfilled, such as the nationalization of hydrocarbons, recalled Arce, who has a lead in the polls ahead of the Oct. 18 elections.
However, Mesa also flirted with the possibility of adding the candidate for the presidency of the Creemos alliance, Luis Fernando Camacho, to his list, emphasized the MAS president.
