Legado pésimo – evo – Dreadful legacy

Humberto Vacaflor, El Diario:

A harmful inheritance

The Bartolinas have asked the cocalero Morales not to get involved in the electoral campaign, the peasant leader of Oruro Johnny Rocha, (of the MAS), asks that Morales be expelled from the party, the president of deputies, Sergio Choque, says that the cocalero would have to defend himself only before justice. But also the former number 2 of the MAS, Santos Ramírez, says that “the pedophile would not have to return to parliament.”

The coca grower says he distrusts David Choquehuanca, his party’s current vice presidential candidate. And he also says that Eva Copa, president of the Senate, is “selfish and sold.”

In short, it is a party in an accelerated process of dissolution, but there are some of its members who have decided to think ahead, hoping to save something. Adriana Salvatierra herself has admitted that the MAS made many mistakes.

A party that seeks its future, but a future, preferably, not linked to drug trafficking. That is the anguish of those who would like the MAS to continue to be an actor in Bolivian politics.

Therefore, they want to cut the link that the MAS has with drug trafficking. And they want to do it even if that cut went through the neck of the cocalero Morales.

Choquehuanca represents the indigenous “non-coca growers.” This has been accentuated even by Felipe Quispe, when he said that his followers were not coca growers.

It is not that being a coca grower is synonymous with crime. Is that, from Chapare, where 96% of coca goes to drugs, to be a cocalero is to be a drug trafficker.

The experts who have consulted the MAS heirs say that the negative factor of the party, at this moment, is its connection with drug trafficking. Something that until recently was not a problem, but now, when Bolivians have decided to repudiate this activity, they know that they have no future if they do not break that bond.

In this way, the leaders of the Chapare are becoming isolated. Choquehuanca, a non-coca grower Aymara indigenous, is marking the future.

And then Santos Ramírez arrives, who says that the coca grower Morales betrayed the party and the country and proposes a new political instrument. Eva Copa, disqualified by Morales, is the standard-bearer of this masista cause, which consists of freeing that party from its heavy stain.

The cocalero Morales knows all this. He knows that his candidate is going to lose, and that now it will be known, with precise numbers, what the MAS is worth without fraud. It was fraudulent leadership.

Perhaps that is why he intends to kick the board. He would like a war to break out, for there to be no elections. But it seems that it is too late.

Una herencia dañina

Las Bartolinas han pedido al cocalero Morales que no se meta en la campaña electoral, el dirigente campesino de Oruro Johnny Rocha, (del MAS), pide que Morales sea expulsado del partido, el presidente de diputados, Sergio Choque, dice que el cocalero tendría que defenderse solo ante la justicia. Pero además el anterior número 2 del MAS, Santos Ramírez, dice que “el pedófilo no tendría que volver al parlamento”.

El cocalero dice que desconfía de David Choquehuanca, actual candidato de su partido a la vicepresidencia. Y también dice que Eva Copa, presidente del senado, es “egoísta y vendida”.

En suma, se trata de un partido en acelerado proceso de disolución, pero hay algunos de sus miembros que han decidido pensar en el futuro, con la esperanza de salvar algo. La propia Adriana Salvatierra ha admitido que el MAS cometió muchos errores.

Un partido que busca su futuro, pero un futuro, preferiblemente, no ligado al narcotráfico. Esa es la angustia de quienes quisieran que el MAS siga siendo un actor en la política boliviana.

Por lo tanto, quieren cortar la ligazón que tiene el MAS con el narcotráfico. Y quieren hacerlo incluso si ese corte pasara por el cuello del cocalero Morales.

Choquehuanca representa a los indígenas “no cocaleros”. Eso lo ha ido acentuando incluso Felipe Quispe, cuando decía que sus seguidores no eran cocaleros.

No es que el ser cocalero sea sinónimo de delincuencia. Es que, desde Chapare, donde 96% de la coca va a la droga, ser cocalero es ser narcotraficante.

Los expertos que han consultado los herederos del MAS dicen que el factor negativo del partido, en este momento, es su ligazón con el narcotráfico. Algo que hasta hace poco no era problema, pero ahora, cuando los bolivianos han decidido repudiar esa actividad, saben que no tienen futuro si no rompen ese vínculo.

De esa manera, los dirigentes del Chapare van quedando aislados. Choquehuanca, un indígena aimara no cocalero, está marcando el futuro.

Y entonces llega Santos Ramírez, quien dice que el cocalero Morales traicionó al partido y al país y propone un nuevo instrumento político. Eva Copa, descalificada por Morales, es la abanderada de esta causa masista, que consiste en liberar a ese partido de su pesada mancha.

El cocalero Morales sabe todo esto. Sabe que su candidato va a perder, y que ahora se sabrá, con números precisos, lo que vale el MAS sin fraudes. Era un liderazgo fraudulento.

Quizá por eso se propone patear el tablero. Quisiera que estalle una guerra, que no haya elecciones. Pero parece que es muy tarde.
