The Central Obrera Boliviana will not support the marches for the reelection of Evo Morales

The Central Obrera Boliviana (COB) announced today that it will not participate in the mobilizations of social sectors that will march this Tuesday in La Paz to support the reelection of President Evo Morales in 2019, something that the largest national union entity described as a "betrayal".

La Paz, Nov 6 (EFE) .- The Central Obrera Boliviana (COB) announced today that it will not participate in the mobilizations of social sectors that will march this Tuesday in La Paz to support the reelection President Evo Morales in 2019, something that the largest national union entity described as a "betrayal."

The entity's top leader, the miner Guido Mitma, told Efe that "the COB is demanding respect for the Constitution and respect for the citizen vote "that rejected in a referendum last year the possibility of Morales being a candidate again in 2019.

Mitma He also indicated that the COB believes that "the repossession of Evo Morales is a betrayal of the Bolivians" and that it will not be added to the mobilizations of the organizations related to the oficialismo.

Some unions and peasant organizations and neighborhood supporters of Morales will march this Tuesday in La Paz to express their support for Morales' intention to return to postulate in 2019.

The sectors related to the ruling coalition mobilized with the same intention two weeks ago in Cochabamba (center) and for the next few days a similar march is expected in Santa Cruz (east).

The ruling party presented to the Constitutional Court (TC) a legal appeal to request that some articles of the Constitution be declared inapplicable and that annul others of the Electoral Law to enable the candidacy of Morales.

The argument of the legal action is that the right of Morales to be elected and the right of the people to be respected must be respected. choose it, based on Article 23 of the American Convention on Human Rights (ACHR), to which Bolivia has subscribed.

The TC will issue its ruling in December, before its seven magistrates conclude their six-year term.

In an interview published on the weekend in a local newspaper, Vice President Álvaro García Linera confirmed that, in addition to the appeal, the ruling party has "four or five options" to get Morales qualified as a candidate.

Among those options are a constitutional reform from Parliament or even a new Constituent Assembly.

Although the Constitution establishes only two consecutive mandates, Morales, who has presided over Bolivia since 2006, was able to run for the 2014 elections to get a third period thanks to a Constitutional ruling that noted that Bolivia was re-founded with the new Magna Carta in 2009.

If the current president manages to enable his candidacy in 2019 and win those elections, will govern the country until 2025.
