Sucre, Bolivia, (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Evo Morales stressed Friday that Bolivia is a democratic country, and highlighted the importance of judicial elections in October in which the people will choose the judges.
At a ceremony to deliver resources of the program “Bolivia cambia, Evo cumple” (Bolivia Changes, Evo Fulfils) program, Morales criticized the attitude of the opposition to encourage a no vote, which threatens democracy and undermines society.
He reiterated the government’s commitment to meet the needs of the population and referred to the corruption of previous administrations.
Morales also mentioned the impact of social policies implemented in Bolivia, many of which are respected in the world.
In that sense, Morales spoke of the investment program Mas Agua, mi agua (More Water, my water), which provides resources in order to develop this sector, and said that Bolivia institutionalized water as a human right.
He also highlighted the importance of the nationalization of hydrocarbons that was enacted in 2006, which provided resources to promote social benefit works as part of the “Bolivia cambia, Evo cumple” program, and the development of the electricity sector, that is so important in the country.
