The ousted President of Bolivia Evo Morales spoke to the press in Buenos Aires on Friday after the Bolivian Supreme electoral court disqualified his candidature from Senate elections this May.
Morales slammed the tribunal's decision as unconstitutional, saying it followed the “instructions that come from the Palace,” appearing to allude to interim president Jeanine Anez.
«This disqualification... Еще of Evo is an assault on democracy. They are afraid of democracy, finally,» Morales said.
Argentinian Judge of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights Raul Zaffaroni also warned of «the risk of altering even more seriously the peace in our dear Bolivia.»
Morales was ousted in November following weeks of unrest in the wake of the disputed October 20 presidential election. The country's interim president Jeanine Anez appointed the elections to take place on May 3.
