The self-proclaimed President of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, has unleashed criticism for using institutional discourse as head of state to spread a message of a strongly political nature in which she attacked her predecessor Evo Morales.
“The path to building a better future begins. Our path is the path of well-being and rewards (…). I want to and can face this challenge,” said Áñez in a presidential message published this Saturday on the state television broadcaster Bolivia TV.
Áñez, candidate for the Juntos alliance for the presidential elections on October 18, appeared with the national symbols in the background in a speech published on the occasion of the ten-month transitional government with the seal of the Ministry of the Presidency.
Áñez has promised that the Canasta Familiar, Bono Familia and Bono Universal bonds will be reissued next year, even if it is not elected. “I will make sure that the state continues to deliver the bonds in 2021 regardless of what it has to do and who it has to hit,” he added.
