On December 3rd, Judicial Elections took place in Bolivia

Posted December 4, 2017 from Bolivia

In the second attempt to impose his magistrates, Evo Morales has lost again. Seven out of ten votes have been null or blank, and any of his candidates will be found "eligible" for leading positions in Bolivian justice with less than 5% of the votes of people.

Please read the link below so that you can understand how this election has taken place the first time and how this second time is even worse than the first.

Bolivia deserves better. The Coup D'Etat given by the judicial authorities to annull the decision of Bolivian People to stop Evo Morales and Alvaro Garcia Linera from postulating again to the presidency and vice presidency, is the payment Evo Morales received for legalizing their jobs, even though people had voted against them.

In this second time around, living in the dark night of a Coup D'Etat in a State without a Constitution, or a Constitution that can be voided by the simplicity of a wish from Evo Morales to have "his human rights" recognized by a band of criminals in the Supreme Court, it is IMPOSSIBLE to know how many Good Bolivians will have to die in the streets fighting to recover democracy and liberty.

Dear Jacqueline,

Politics is such a dirty game and those in the thick of it have no qualms going to any extent to retain the power and control. Just like in India.But in my country, media plays a critical role in garnering public's reactions and responses and being a democracy, the civil society also plays a major role in checking anti-social movements. In your country, who/what has an influence and what is the role of women in your society in the choice of the government?

Thanks for your updates, made me reflect a lot.

Love and hugs,
Urmila Chanam,
