Mo­rales calls for new elec­tions in Bolivia

The National - News - - NEWS WORLD -

Bo­li­vian Pres­i­dent Evo Mo­rales said yes­ter­day he would call for new elec­tions after the Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Amer­i­can States re­leased a re­port say­ing a dis­puted Oc­to­ber 20 vote should be an­nulled be­cause of ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties. The long-stand­ing leader of the South Amer­i­can na­tion also said he would re­place the mem­bers of the coun­try’s elec­toral board, which came un­der fire after the elec­tion, won by Mr Mo­rales, was mired in wide­spread al­le­ga­tions of elec­toral fraud. Po­lice joined anti-gov­ern­ment protests at the week­end as the mil­i­tary said it would not “con­front the peo­ple”.
