MADRID, Oct. 30 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bolivia, Diego Pary, announced Wednesday that the audit that will be carried out by the Organization of American States (OAS) of the elections of October 20 in the country will start this Thursday and will be “binding” “.
As explained by the chancellor, about thirty experts will arrive between Wednesday and Thursday to the country and will be accompanied by Spain, Mexico and Paraguay. However, “neighbors, Latin American and extra-regional countries are being invited” to participate in the process, he added.
“The audit will focus on the elections of October 20 and later stage,” Pery explained, according to his department. “The team of experts will deliver a report to the OAS Secretary General (Luis Almagro), who will send it to Bolivia,” he added.
The Government of Evo Morales would thus accede to the request made by the main opposition candidate, Carlos Mesa, who has rejected the result of the elections that gave the president the victory in the first round and has requested that what the OAS decides with his audit has binding character.
