Orellana recalled that the departmental and municipal level determined to suspend the first Oruro carnival invitation that was scheduled for Sunday, December 5, and argued that the future of the festival is being analyzed with this precedent.

“For now, the first invitation has been suspended. It is not yet suspended to the Carnival. That will be evaluated. We are going to meet to see the issue of the fourth wave that comes to us,” announced the minister.

In this possible meeting, she specified, the Oruro authorities will have to participate. “With our departmental authorities in Oruro we will decide to suspend or not suspend the carnival,” she announced.

The head of Cultures explained that there are national, departmental and municipal governmental powers. However, she stressed that “people’s lives and health must be safeguarded.”
