The Electoral Observation Mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) expresses its deepest appreciation to the Bolivian people for the civic attitude demonstrated today, by massively and peacefully exercising their right to vote and having done so in a responsible manner, despite the long lines and extraordinary challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Plurinational Electoral Body is carrying out the vote count and will announce the final results. In this context in which the count takes time, we reiterate our call for both the citizens and the different political parties to patiently await official data. The next few days will be crucial for the future of Bolivia and everyone must live up to this historic moment. The Bolivian people today have shown their commitment to democracy and it is important that the political parties follow their example.
The Organization of American States has always defended the popular will in Bolivia expressed through free elections. A day like today is an opportunity to advance in the construction of a more inclusive and tolerant country.
The OAS Electoral Observation Mission will remain attentive to the development of the official count and will issue, in the coming days, a preliminary report on the electoral process as a whole.
