Do not destroy what is the work of hundreds of thousands of people who fought against neoliberalism for more than 20 years. For personal competitions and anguish, let’s not affect this unity of the people’, he reiterated in an interview to the television program Detrás de la Verdad, of the DTV channel.
Author of several books, García Linera urged to solve the internal conflicts within the MAS-Political Instrument for the Sovereignty of the Peoples (IPSP) and urged to preserve with unity what has been conquered in two decades of struggle by the popular sectors.
The former vice president (2006-2019) reiterated the call to resolve the internal fights within the MAS-IPSP and let President Luis Arce, who was elected in the 2020 elections with 55.11% of the votes, govern.
According to the sociologist, the struggle in the MAS-IPSP is electoral and it went too far ahead, which generates the fissures.
During the interview with DTV, the author of the book Sociology of the social movements in Bolivia, recalled that a large part of Arce’s victory in the 2020 elections was due to ‘Evo’s votes’.
However, he insisted that the current president is the elected president and his administration must be respected ‘as long as he does not deviate from the line’.
He described as ‘very risky’ the degree of tension and separation that the MAS-IPSP is suffering today, and advocated that President Arce should stop attacks on the MAS-IPSP leader, Evo Morales, coming from public officials of the current government.
