Canada welcomes results of OAS electoral audit mission to Bolivia

11/11/19 Canada

The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement:

“Canada welcomes the call for new elections in Bolivia by the Organization of American States (OAS) Electoral Observer Mission to the country.

“The results of the OAS mission audit demonstrate serious failings in the conduct and accounting of the October 20, 2019, vote. It is clear that the will of the Bolivian people and the democratic process were not respected.

“Canada also calls for the renewal of an independent and impartial Bolivian electoral authority to conduct this process, to be monitored by a robust international observation mission led by the OAS.

“At this time, it is critical that all Bolivian political and social actors exercise restraint and avoid violence and confrontation.

“Canada commends the invaluable work of the OAS audit mission in ensuring a fair and transparent process, which we supported financially and through our expertise.

“Canada stands with Bolivia and the democratic will of its people. We note the resignation of President Morales and will continue support Bolivia during this transition and the new elections.”
