Venezuela congratulates MAS and Luis Arce for the resounding electoral triumph in Bolivia

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Venezuelan people and Government, congratulates the brotherly Bolivian people for the ample and unobjectionable triumph of the Movement to Socialism (MAS) on the historic electoral day of yesterday, October 18th, 2020, while congratulating the President-elect of the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Luis Arce, and the Vice President-elect, David Choquehuanca, for the resounding victory achieved in the presidential elections. This historic victory renews the hope of the Bolivian people, who are returning to the democratic path of social justice, despite the suffering and trauma imposed over the past 12 months. The massive electoral participation reinforces the legitimacy of the process and gives a clear message of popular rejection of the fascist coup d’état executed a year ago. It has been the humble men and women, the workers, the indigenous peoples, the brave youth, who have rescued the Bolivian Homeland from the hands of neoliberal imperialism. No repressive power could impose itself on the will of a free people. Upon highlighting the heroism of the sons and daughters of Túpak Katari, Bartolina Sisa, Simón Bolívar and Antonio José de Sucre, the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela makes a special recognition to the brother President Evo Morales Ayma, for his resistance capacity and strategic perseverance to guarantee the successful viability of this new and luminous stage that the Bolivian people is undertaking. As Commander Chávez stated: ¡Only the People save the People! ¡Jallalla Bolivia!
