61% of Bolivians believe that the TSE can organize “clean elections”

61 percent of Bolivians have considered that the country’s Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) can organize “transparent and clean elections,” according to a survey published Sunday by the local newspaper ‘Página Siete’.

On the other hand, 28 percent think they are capable of doing so and 11 percent have said they do not know or have not answered the question.

The ex-defense of the People, Rolando Villena, has affirmed that the perception of the respondents is due to the fact that the TSE that had previously been “totally subject to the past government regime”, although he considers that this trust “should not be seen as an achievement” but as a “sign.” “You must continue to work very intensely on trust … While you are complying with the norm, you must also work on the issue of legitimacy,” Villena stressed.

In a survey published by the same media in September 2019, 68 percent of respondents felt that there had been “fraud” in the last elections.

The Bolivian TSE disabled the candidacy for senator of former president Evo Morales for the May 3 elections, while he accepted that of the former Minister of Economy, Luis Arce, candidate for president for the party of the indigenous leader, Movement to Socialism (MAS).

Morales said he will resort to the rejection of the TSE to his candidacy as a senator and called into question the commitment of certain authorities to the transparency of these elections in describing this decision as “a blow against democracy.”
