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

Hi, how did this unfold? Well, it started stated at around seven in the morning people wake woke up for, you know what the hoped would be a nice peaceful Sunday to discover the power's out across almost all of Argentine, which is the second largest country in this region.

Now officials are saying that this was a failure in the grids into into connection system Chapman in the northeast between two big installations, and then triggered this unprecedented chain-reaction. They don't think. By the way, that this was a cyber attack, or any other kind of sabotage, but they don't exactly know what happened yet. They could be a couple of weeks before they do. We do know that the great and the infrastructure is not good shape. How are people responding to this to this odd Sunday? Very angry. Obviously, I mean, in Argentina that already facing really very hot times inflation, there is among the highest in the world, the economy's, you know, boom and bust economy.
