The decision to disqualify Morales as a Senatorial candidate was postponed due to lack of approval

The two members of the Second Constitutional Chamber of the Departmental Court of Justice (TDJ) postponed the decision on Tuesday whether or not to disqualify the candidacy of former Bolivian President Evo Morales as Senator for Cochabamba in the next elections due to a lack of agreement.

The judges have extended the ruling for another 48 hours while waiting to call in a third member to settle the tie.

The Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) of Bolivia annulled Morales’ presence on the Movement for Socialism (MAS) lists for the elections that will take place on October 18th in February this year.
