La Paz Said Yes to the Nomination of Evo Morales for the 2019 Election

With massive marches and a large concentration in the central Plaza San Francisco, the people of La Paz today supported the nomination of Bolivian President Evo Morales in the 2019 elections to continue the process of change.

Indigenous people, peasants, workers, miners, coca growers, women, youth and representatives of other social sectors participated in the mobilization.

The demonstrators walked from the neighboring city of El Alto and from other points of this city to converge in the center of La Paz in order to back an appeal presented before the Constitutional Court to allow the national, departmental and municipal authorities to aspire to a new period of mandate.

The Plaza Mayor of San Francisco was filled by thousands of people, from all the provinces of the department that, with Bolivian flags and wiphalas (symbol of the Andean people), traveled here to support the government’s management.

‘Today is a great day for all of Bolivia,’ Clemente Gutiérrez, president of the Pro Civic Committee of La Paz, told Prensa Latina.

The social leader highlighted how much the country has advanced in the last 11 years since Evo Morales came to power.

Meanwhile, Jesús Vera, the top leader of the Federation of Neighborhood Boards of La Paz, mentioned among the achievements the nationalization of natural resources and strategic companies.

This allowed the Government to invest in all departments for the creation of educational units, hospitals, sports centers and the modern cable car that connects La Paz and El Alto, he said.

Today’s massive demonstration is a continuation of the one that began on October 26 in Cochabamba and will be extended to other cities in support of the Head of State and the cultural democratic revolution.
