Evo Morales recalls the danger of neoliberal governments in Bolivia
Buenos Aires, Oct 6 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia's former president, Evo Morales recalled on Tuesday that the neoliberal models applied for over two decades triggered poverty in the country and the loss of control of strategic resources.
Refugee in Argentina after the coup in November 2019, Morales emphasized that 'Bolivia had applied for 20 years a neoliberal model that only left poverty, massive layoffs and strategic resources in the hands of transnationals.'
On Twitter, the leader of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) underscored that 'since 2006, and for 14 years (of management at the head of the country), we had came out of the crisis, we had achieved economic growth and stability.'
Morales urged Bolivians to vote for Luis Arce, the MAS candidate in the presidential elections on October 18, because, he assured, only with him the path to democracy will be 'resumed.'
In November 2019, Bolivia was the scene of a coup that ended the reform process led by Morales and put a de facto government led by Jeanine Añez in power.
Now, according to the polls, Arce marches ahead in the voting intentions for Bolivia's presidency, ahead of former president Carlos Mesa, candidate for the Comunidad Ciudadana (Citizen community) political alliance.
In the general elections on October 18, Bolivians will vote to choose 352 new authorities.
In addition to the president and vice president, 36 regular senators and 36 alternates, 130 regular lawmakers and 130 alternates, and nine supra-State representatives and an equal number of alternates will be elected.
