The Interim President of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, has reiterated that her predecessor, Evo Morales, “should only” return to the country “to answer in court,” in full debate on the feasibility or non-existence of the candidacy she put forward for the senator leader.
The Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) overturned Morales’ candidacy for the Senate for Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) in an initial resolution, but a La Paz court is currently examining the case. The division within that court has postponed a ruling that was expected earlier this week.
The government, meanwhile, is not hiding its position. “Bolivia must say NO once again to the dictator that when he returns to the country, it only has to be to answer in court for the abuses committed and especially for the sexual abuse of minors, which are gradually becoming known worldwide”, he said.

The Bolivian executive has filed two complaints with prosecutors about a possible rape crime for Morales’ alleged relationship with a minor.
