The attorney general, Henry Ara, explained to Bolivia TV that the institution established the breach of agreements, international and national standards in the audit for the preparation of the aforementioned report by the organization.
Said document, based on incomplete information and in violation of legal protocols, warned of irregularities in the automated vote counting and suggested that their goal was to benefit President Evo Morales, then re-elected for a new term in the first round.
The report served as an excuse for the Bolivian right to give the green light to the coup that ended with the resignation of Morales and the establishment of an unconstitutional government headed by Jeanine Áñez, according to the ABI news agency.
Ara explained that an audit consists of the systematic study of data and evidence that concludes with a verdict on the revised process, its irregularities, responsibilities, or good functioning and results.
He then disqualified the work carried out in October 2019 by the OAS Observer Mission, which based its report on an investigation that does not correspond to the characteristics of an audit and failed to comply with the terms agreed with the Government of Bolivia for its work in relation to the elections.
The commission made by La Paz was an audit that would rule on the final computation, the statistics and the verification of the minutes, in the words of the State Comptroller General.
