Bolivian presidential election: UK government statement

The UK government shares the OAS and EEAS assessments of substantial shortcomings in the 20 October 2019 presidential election in Bolivia.

A Foreign & Commonwealth Office spokesperson recently (25 October 2019) said:

The United Kingdom shares the Organisation of American States (OAS) and European External Action Service (EEAS) assessments that substantial shortcomings in Sunday’s presidential and legislative elections in Bolivia, notably the unexpected interruption of publication of voting results, undermined their credibility and transparency.

We also agree that the best option would be to hold a second round to restore trust in the process and to fully ensure the democratic choice of the Bolivian people. We call on all parties to refrain from violence.
