Evo Morales calls for avoiding provocations in Bolivian elections
Buenos Aires, Oct 18 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian former president Evo Morales (2006-2019) called today for waiting for the results of the elections in a climate of peace and avoiding provocations that could generate violence.
It is very important to wait calmly until each one of the votes is counted, said Morales on Twitter where he also reiterated that with violence 'we all lose'.
From Argentina, where he is as a political refugee after the 2019 coup d'état against him, Morales stressed that the elections must always be a democratic party to re-encounter again beyond differences.
More than 7.33 million Bolivians will elect the highest authorities of the country.
This is the second general election in the South American nation in less than a year after the coup d'état against Morales in 2019.
Luis Arce, from the Movement Towards Socialism, is the favorite to win this election over the rest of the candidates: Carlos Mesa (Citizen Community), Luis Fernando Camacho (We Believe Alliance), Chi Hyun Chung (Front for Victory) and Feliciano Mamani (Bolivian National Action Party).
To win in the first round, you must reach more than 50 percent of the votes, or at least 40 percent of the ballots with a difference of 10 points over the second place candidate, according to the current legislation.
