Statement of the OAS General Secretariat on the Situation in Bolivia

  November 11, 2019

Facing the political and institutional crisis in Bolivia, the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS) rejects any unconstitutional resolution of the situation.

The General Secretariat calls for peace and respect for the Rule of Law.

In that sense, the General Secretariat requests an urgent meeting of the Plurinational Legislative Assembly of Bolivia to ensure the institutional functioning and to name new electoral authorities to guarantee a new electoral process.

It is also important that justice continues to investigate existing responsibilities regarding the commission of crimes related to the electoral process held on October 20, until they are resolved.
