"evo morales" Discussed on Axios Today
"Welcome back to axios. Today, we have the outcome of one presidential election to share with you. It's actually in Bolivia. It's been a year since the contested election that led then president Evo Morales to flee the country. Now, his ally, the leftist Luis Arce won an overwhelming and clear victory in Bolivia on Sunday actually, it's world editor Dave lawler has been reporting this out David. I think we probably need a quick history lesson here about what's been going on in Bolivia past year. Sure. So it's been basically a year long political crisis in Bolivia kicked off by the previous elections in which Morales was declared the winner in the first round. But after the fact was accused of fraud irregularities and Actually Morales ended up fleeing the country under pressure from the military. Subsequently, there have been all sorts of questions about whether there actually were irregularities in the vote count. The last time around Morales supporters say it was basically Aku his opponents accused him of basically being an authoritarian wanting to cling to power. So it's very messy situation but finally, we did get this election and we did get a clear result this time around. So is it fair to say this was kind of like a do over election it was a do over without the key player right Evo Morales is sort of a political giant in Bolivia was in power since two, thousand six and Arce was his Economy Minister for twelve years. So he's stepping in as kind of the era parent although they're very different in their political styles. And although Able Morales was a socialist economy grew considerably under his tenure. Some of that is due to to say so he is viewed as sort of a pragmatist and a technocrat he's an economist. So the question is, are we going to get a continuation of the Morales tenure or is our sega sort of go off in his own direction and maybe a more understated style of Leadership Davis? We've been talking about the coronavirus pandemic and how much that has weakened democracy. This is actually an opposite. These elections are considered a win for democracy right certainly a win for democracy in that we had a clear result and we had the losers of the election right away concede defeat. The will of the people seems to have been quite clear and we do have a democratically elected government coming into power in Bolivia. Dweller is actually his world editor..
Socialists Make A Strong Comeback In Bolivia
"Socialist appear to have made a strong comeback yesterday in Bolivia's presidential election. All of the votes have yet to be counted. But the handpicked candidate of ousted President Evo Morales seems to have taken a big lead in the first round. Those are supporters of socialist Louise Arcee, celebrating in downtown La Paz. NPR's Philip Reeves has been following this from his base in Rio de Janeiro and joins me now. Hi, Phil. Hi. Remind us what set the stage for this election. For the past year, Bolivia has been ruled by an interim president from the political right. Yeah, This goes back to late last year, when Morales was pushed out and went into exile. His opponent said he tried to rig an election. They cited an audit of that election by the Organization of American States that showed numerous irregularities. Others dispute those allegations and say Morales was the victim of a coup on elected interim government took over headed by right winger call Ginny Anya's. It's had a rough ride and yes crackdown on the opposition. Several dozen of Morales is indigenous supporters were killed by security forces during protests which polarized country of more Then the pandemic arrived in the electoral authorities postpone the election twice and that triggered mass protests and Nation and the nation wide blockade, and people were worried that yesterday's election would bring more unrest. But that didn't happen happily. So with all of this, how certain are we that the socialist Louise Arcee is actually one? Yeah, I mean, it doesn't appear that he's run out, won the first round outright, his main rival, Carlos Messer, today, conceded Saying that people have to recognize there's being a winner. The interim president Ginny Anya's tweeted, congratulations to us in his running mate Very early on Mexico in Argentina, You know, two big regional players politically on the left, have publicly congratulated him. And so, by the way is the U. S. Polls before the election did show us He was well ahead in the lead, you know as well in the lead, but his chances of winning out right in the first round weren't Sena's full. That great unofficial vote count indicate he's actually done that. But this hasn't been officially confirmed by the electoral authorities. They say the official count could take several days to complete. Can you say Maura about thie us in support of our say the U. S. Did concur with the allegations of border voter fraud committed by more Alice? Yeah, when they ran, it was pushed out. The Trump administration was frankly delighted, is a huge figure on the Latin American left. He was Bolivia's first indigenous president. He ruled for nearly 14 years. He's credited with growing the economy a lot not least through nationalization and lifting millions out of poverty with the help of a C who was his economy minister. S O. The prospect of a socialist comeback in Bolivia isn't likely to go down well in in Washington, the right wing tends to bracket morale is with Venezuelan Cuba and you know they saw his fall is a defeat for international socialism. But the State Department certainly saw the writing on the wall and has recently been saying it will work with whoever is legitimately elected. That's NPR's Philip Greaves. Thank you so

"evo morales" Discussed on KUGN 590 AM
"I'm John Baxter. This is the John Baxter Show. I welcome Mary Anastasia O'Grady, The Americas editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal Editorial board, pointing us to an election in the new world within these next hours on Sunday, an election in Bolivia, you will remember That color flee the president of Bolivia, Longtime Evo Morales fled the country after challenged by the his voters about fixing the last presidential election. He now lives in exile in Argentina after making stops in Mexico, among other places. However. Marry a very good evening to you. Louis Arcee is a presidential candidate Within these next days for the first round of voting, he represents the movement towards Socialism Party. In your column. You identify Louis Arcee as a stand in a surrogate and avatar for morale is his morale is coming back. Good evening to you, Mayor. Well. Good evening, John. I don't think Morales is coming back as president. I could be wrong about that. But there's no doubt that he's kind of the power behind the throne that whoever gets in there is president more. Alice is going to be calling the shock. And one reason for that is that morality is the secretary general. Of Bolivia's Federation of Coca Growers, which is now one of the biggest distribute producers and distributors of cocaine in the region. And you know that's where all the money is. That's where all the power is, and he has had that job since 1996. He did not give that job up during his 14 years. As president of Bolivia, and he remains the you know the dawn of that organised crime group. So that's really where the powers and whoever you know becomes president. If it is Luis Arce, who is the candidate for more Alice's party. Will basically take orders from ore Alice. There had interim presidents they've had other actors come forward to run for the presidency. But if I recall you're reporting on Morales over the years, his strength is in Ah, the popular will of the poor people. Does that continue? Does he have the support of the what? Let's say the the the the the Disadvantaged. Well, the party again. Louise Arcee is the candidate more Alice. Is that the figurehead of the party? The party? Yes, it's the populist left wing party. So it's everything you and you know, Think of when you think of the party with those politics. Claims to be a defender of the poor in Bolivia. There's also a heavy racial, um, component to politics because The indigenous population is significant and has become a very meaningful political force in the country. But what's interesting is that Despite all that the party doesn't have a majority of the voters. They're polling at about 35% when you adjust the total number of votes because it's mandatory voting in in Bolivia, so many people go To meet their mandatory requirement, but they spoiled about They either vote blank or they do something to the ballot. So when they count up how many votes went for any one candidate, they had just a denominator according to the valid votes. And when you calculate what the expectation is for Luis Arce, it's expected that so he's polling at about 35%. He will probably get around 44% of the valid votes because a lot of the votes will be no annulled. And but But still, that's Less than half of the population backing these ideas, and that's significant, I think. I mean, it shows that despite all the headline to read about how popular more Alice was, you know, really a majority of the country does not support him or his ideas. Morales represents not just the growers Association identify but also he's a protege of Fidel Castro these many years later, that sounds sentimental. But there's a growing opinion in Latin America that many of these states are fragile and that fragility is being taken advantage of by Morales and his colleagues. Not the least of which is Maduro of Venezuela. Now is that old news auras. Morale is working in some fashion with Maduro and other actors like Iran, Russia I mentioned to mention two or Hezbollah, too, to destabilize all the countries of Latin America. What can you say about that? General opinion, Mary for sure, the Mask Party, which is the movement towards socialism. That's the name of more Alice Party, which is goes by must and they ask That party is still very closely allied with The Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba axis. If you will in the region and yes, they they have close relation with Iran. And they are friendly to Russia. Because you know Russia sees that is a way to get there. But, you know, get a foothold in the Western Hemisphere. Eso. Yeah, All of those all of the above. I mean, they still have the ideals of Cuba. They want to promote these ideas of basically anti American anti progress, anti democratic ideals and one of the things that morality did When he was a power was he did not abide by any of the norms that you and I think of with modern liberal democracy, including things like term limits and so forth. He He was elected that he changed the Constitution and the new constitution, said he could run twice. So then he had three and then he said, Well, my first term doesn't count because the Constitution is new. So he put three terms under his belt. And then of course he was, he decided he wanted to run for 1/4 term. He held a referendum. The voters said, No, you cannot have 1/4 term. Then he went to the Supreme Court, which was his in his pocket. And they said, Yes, you can. You can rule indefinitely, And so then he ran. And then of course, as you mentioned he ran into problems last year when he was accused of fraud, and he had to flee the country. But the fact of the matter is he saw no problem with staying indefinitely in that office. Which is, you know, goes really against the idea that most people have of democracy where you limit the power of the executive. And the ability of them just to, you know, sort of dig in and hang around for decades. That's a very human I'd help but it's not very consistent with as they say, Modern liberal democracy. Married the election. The first round the election coming up Louis Arcee, should we regard him as just a tool, or is it possible he could develop independence? On rescue Bolivia. We just have 30 seconds. Well, I mean, it's always possible you had that happened in Ecuador, where the vice president ran and he ended up turning on. Ah, Cordelia. Oh, and it's possible, but I feel like it's low probability, and the reason is because the coca business in the cocaine business is so powerful financially that it It plays a huge role in politics. And in Bolivia. Mariana Sage O'Grady, the Americas editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board. I'm John Bachelor. This is the John Baxter.

We welcome the both to democracy. Now let's begin in Bolivia with Pablo Salon can do you describe what happened as a coup. I think it's very complicated to say. It's cool because I think there was a popular valium because this issue stuck in two thousand sixteen whenever Morales didn't recognize the result of a referendum. That said that he couldn't run for a new reelection election. If he would have respected that referendum he would have finished his third term as probably the best present in Bolivia but he didn't do that. He forced that the Constitutional Tribunal Did a statement saying that it was a human right to to run for new elections and then we have the elections of the twenty eighth of October Stober. Were they were. There was definitely frog you have we have so many evidences here ear so many reports from different institutions not only are saying that of course the population went to the street it was massive and it has lasted for twenty days so to say this is a coup. d'etat plan by The towels the right-wing forces fascist forces. I think it's it's to make a caricature of what is really happening. Now who's going to take advantage of. The situation are going to be right-wing forces is going to be the imperialist North America but who created this crisis I think was this his addiction to power that ever moralist and his party began to have during the last years. I'd like to ask S. A. Kevin Young to Deal with the same issue of whether this was a coup or not and also to deal with the reality that the majority in the Congress. It's still of the is the political party of Emma Morale's so to what degree can Whoever becomes president be able to To to move forward with the political agenda given the enormous strength still love the oven without his forces in the country a coup has has a simple and straightforward definition. It's the unconstitutional removal. A sitting President before that President's term in office is up in the case of Bolivia Evo Morales is elected president. His term isn't do up until January. Twenty first of twenty twenty and in this case on Sunday. Oh you had the lead commander of the belief armed forces directly intervening in ordering evo out of office. So that's a coup and I think that's that's pretty straightforward forward. That shouldn't be controversial. What makes this coup particularly dangerous is that it is being supported by the most racist and reactionary elements hits in Bolivian society? Now as well as by the United States now all of that being said the overall political situation in Bolivia is complex complex. All of the opposition is not the same. The opposition is not monolithic. There are opposition protesters who are much more progressive Many indigenous groups working class Bolivians have become very disillusioned with the government and turned against it. So those voices are important and to recognize. We shouldn't be painting the entire opposition with the same. Brush or insinuating that it's all some conspiracy by the United States. But at the same meantime it is important to recognize as well that almost half of the Bolivian population voted for Edelmira October twentieth. And whether you think that's forty seven seven percent as the government said or maybe it's only forty six or forty five percent. The fact remains that almost half of Bolivia's still supported Avo on October Twentieth Twentieth. And those voices also need to be counted and recognized they may have criticisms of the government many of them do and I know some of them but they're they're not supporting the coup because they fear that a right wing government is really going to roll back some of the progressive gains that have been made in the last thirteen years in in an immediate sense. They're they're fearful of right wing violence in the streets which is happening in which is targeting particularly indigenous Bolivians. Now what's going to happened with the Congress because despite the fact that many moss legislators and officials have resigned sometimes under threat of violence from the right it is still true that a majority of the congress is controlled by the Maas Party. They have signaled they have said that they are interested in finding finding a constitutional resolution to the crisis. Now what exactly that's going to look like is still very unclear. It's not clear what new elections are going to look like or under what conditions they're going to be held. The Maas Party is somewhat in disarray. The last several days so we really don't know what's going to happen at this point the song I wanted to ask you about this This issue of Motorola's had agreed as a result of the protests industries and the the recommendation of the Organization of American States to hold new elections. So should the opposition have at least waited until his term was was up until new elections were held Be before attempting to remove him completely and also the issue of the military the military On on the one hand said that we're not going to intercede when the police officers began rebelling against the government but then has interceded To join the police police in now attempting to quell protests of Morales supporters. Okay so the first thing ever morales call to new elections when he said he was going to call new elections and he said he was going to change the electoral court which meant that. He agreed that the electoral court was involved in some cases of fraud in the the elections of the twentieth of October. Because a ever morale is didn't say I called with elections and I respect this electoral court. I will change it because the evidence were to to a there was fraud and of course you have in the population relation. Let them writing forces. The population said what's out. You're saying that new elections with a new electoral court means means that there was fraud and fraud. It's something that you cannot except it's a crime so you cannot. Let's say okay. Well there was no. I'm going to call for new elections. Nothing happened in Bolivia. Now I guarantee you that everything is going to be okay. It's impossible what happened there. The Danilovich coup and went out to the streets that day and force morale is no. They said we're not going to go out to the street. The situation is terrible so people don't accept new elections after you are recognizing that there was wrong. That is what they said. And and we suggest that you sign and they didn't went out to the streets and why did he resign my point of view. He resigned because he was not able to sustain. The is this idea that the elections of the twentieth of October were were clean and if they weren't clean he was involved. Because you cannot do that frog without the involvement of the government
