Bolivia: Socialist Candidate to Win Elections in First Round

(TELESUR) – The U.S.-backed, interim president Jeanine Añez only has 13 percent of the voting intention.

The Latin America Strategic Center for Geopolitics (CELAG) Tuesday published the results of a survey according to which the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) presidential candidate Luis Arce would get 41.9 percent of the votes in the upcoming elections in September.

This percentage of popular support would allow him to win the elections in the first round, far exceeding the Bolivian right-wing candidate, Carlos Mesa, who would barely get 26.8 percent of the vote.

The coup-born regime leader Jeanine Añez, who self-proclaimed herself as interim president and also wants to participate as a candidate, has half the vote intention as Mesa.

The CELAG study also reports that only 8.5 percent of those interviewed consider that the pandemic and its economic effects have not affected them.
