S. KARGANOVIC—The question could legitimately be put why Morales had to resort to a stand-in instead of running himself and personally humiliating his enemies, probably even more decisively. The reason lies in some dastardly chicanery on the part of the imperial dirty tricks department. Anticipating a virtually fraud-proof electoral disaster if Morales were allowed to run personally, the local puppet regime contrived phony sex charges to disqualify the illegally ousted President and bar him from presenting his candidacy.

People across Bolivia are celebrating the return to democracy and the end to the rule of the repressive de facto regime. The MAS victory has been saluted by world leaders such as Nicolás Maduro, Alberto Fernández, Andrés Manuel López Obrador and others who provided crucial support to Morales and other members of his government and the party during and following the violent coup. After he was forced to step down, Morales and former vice-president Alvaro García Linera fled to Mexico. Following the inauguration of Alberto Fernández as president of Argentina, they, along with their families, sought asylum there.

The recent elections in Bolivia did not happen just because the “interim government” of Jeanine Áñez, duly anointed by the US-proxy OAS, decided to act fair and square and agree to hold elections. It happened after many obstacles and delays because the masses threw themselves out on the roads and streets to make their presence felt, defying harsh repression at every turn.

A report from Bolivia by Max Blumenthal and his team, right after the elections that restored Evo Morales’ party to power. The question now is what is being done by the MAS patriotic movement to consolidate their victory, and what dirty tricks the US and its local allies in Bolivia and the region are plotting to weaken and roll back the popular gains. The empire never rests and never forgets. And it has almost infinite resources.

MoA—Congratulation to the Movimiento al Socialismo, its candidate Luis Arce and the people of Bolivia who withstood the onslaught of intimidation and violence from the right and the military. Even as democracy is now restored in Bolivia it would be wrong to let the right and the military get away with what they have done. They will otherwise try to do it again. The coup leaders should be hauled in front of a court. Bolivia should ask Venezuela for advice on how to coup proof its military forces.
