The Executive Secretary of the Central Obrera Boliviana, Juan Carlos Huarachi, defended his management until 2022 and accused the Confederación Sindical Única de Trabajadores Campesinos de Bolivia (Csutcb) of not being “organic” and of disregarding the statutes.
The Csutcb accused the Chief Executive Officer of the COB, Juan Carlos Huarachi, of extending his mandate and, in this regard, asked him to convene a Congress to renew leadership.
However, the top Cobista leader said he would continue to command this organization “until 2022. That’s in the resolution,” he told the media.
Huarachi has been the COB commander since February 2018. The Csutcb, through leaders Omar Ramírez and Humberto Claros, assures that their mandate has been completed in accordance with the organic statute.
“There are leaders who do not know the organic life, neither the law nor the regulations,” Huarachi replied to the two leaders of the farmers’ union. He also said that this organization “isn’t biological, it has never been biological,” he said.
He also said that the COB leaders are due to the enlarged and the workers and “not to a single sector” in relation to the peasants.
He acknowledged that his term in the interim government had been extended by Jeanine Áñez and stated that only one proceeding had been completed because it was the workers who decided to renew his management.
Almost two years after Huarachi proposed Evo Morales ‘resignation to the president, the leaders of the farmers’ union made the Cobista leader’s request reproachful amid the 2019 political crisis.
