1. Bolivia is the only country in the history of humanity in which, having twice voted for the constitutional presidential limitation, it was still violated. Both times the vote was at the request of President Evo Morales: one in 2009 and another in 2016.
2. Unlike what people that do not know and say, according to the Royal Spanish Academy, the meaning it gives to the word “dictatorship” is exactly what is happening in Bolivia at the moment, since there is no independence of powers or limitations for the president Evo Morales who can change the laws at will. Given that we are currently living in a dictatorship, it is correct to call Morales a dictator.
3. On November 28, 2017, the first coup d’état in the history of Bolivia took place, in which the coup leader was the president in power. The blow was, of course, to the Rule of Law and the Constitution.
4. Despite what MAS legislators argue, the IACHR does not recognize indefinite re-election as a human right.
5. According to our Constitution, which is the law of laws, the sovereignty of the vote – which ratifies an article of the same – can not be unknown by any law or organ of the State. The referendum of February 21, therefore, is binding; its non-application is a crime that has to be paid later, when there is a Rule of Law.
6. The OAS has visited and condemned the Government of Nicaragua for the repressive excesses of its regime. In 2009 Ortega judges determined that being a tyrant was a human right. In 2017, the Constitutional Court of Bolivia cloned the measure and empowered Morales for indefinite re-election, which shows us the violent future we could have.
7. According to Article 168 of our Constitution, President Morales should have left the government in 2014 and not stand for election.
8. The judges who authorized Morales and García to be re-elected indefinitely came to their position through judicial election but were elected for less than 3.5% of the Electoral Roll.
9. The Morales government appeals to Art. 23 of the ACHR, when its regime has violated almost all articles of this, for more than 12 years, to persecute, exile, prosecute, imprison and intimidate all critical or opposition voices in Bolivia.
10. President Morales himself, shortly before the 21F vote, told Telesur the following: “The best thing is to submit to the people. If the people say No, what can we do? We are not going to do a coup, we have to keep quiet.” The best proof that there is a coup d’etat is this, which came out of the mouth of the dictator.
11. On November 11, 2016, the Minister of Justice, Héctor Arce, said on Radio Panamericana that President Morales was not going to use any type of “legal trick” to qualify as a candidate for another re-election. He added that it was impossible to do it in our society. On November 28, 2017, they used a legal trick to empower Morales and García.
12. On April 9, 2018, the final report of the Venice Commission was issued, which states, among other points, that re-election is not a human right; contrary to what the Court argues, which illegally authorized President Morales.
13. On December 4, 2018, the Electoral Tribunal empowered Morales, despite the fact that they themselves had broadcast the following phrase on their Youtube channel: “If the No were to win, the current mandataries can not be candidates in 2019.”
