MAS MP Héctor Arce admitted that this party was in danger of leaving the interim president Jeanine Áñez. “Never” would have accepted that the former senator of the same political tent, Eva Copa, would take over the presidency of the country in 2020.
“The dismissal of Ms. Jeanine Áñez implied that the electoral process was canceled and it was unclear who would occupy (the presidency), since the political constitution states that in the absence of the president the vice-president and in the absence of the vice-president the president of the Senate and (followed by the) MPs. There is no more, he says, that’s why we would never have accepted that Ms. Eva Copa would join for three months, of course it was not accepted because it was political suicide, ”Arce told Red Uno.
Arce’s testimony comes after a video was released of former MAS President and Chief Evo Morales, suggesting that “Áñez needs to be taken care of” and that Copa should not take over the presidency because “The altenños they” would argue for ministries ”. The video is from this year at a MAS mobilization assessment session in August 2020.
For the opposition, these statements confirm the constitutional successor to Áñez, while for the MAS they are only an assessment of the 2020 conflict within the framework of the guarantee of the elections.
“It was a strategy aimed at restoring democracy because the coup government was trying to expand its power,” said the MAS MP.
