The Executive Secretary of the Central Obrera Bolivia (COB), Juan Carlos Huarachi, ratified this Wednesday the “emergency” position of his union in the face of attempts to destabilize the right wing, refusing to recognize the opinion of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE ) that clarifies there was no electoral fraud in the 2019 elections.
Huarachi stressed that they will be alert to any attempt to mobilize or take over institutions by the opposition, and in this sense they are organizing at the national level so that workers stoically defend the recovery of democracy in Bolivia.
The leader called for the unity of the working class, in the face of the growing demonstrations of the Citizen Community (CC) and Creemos parties, which maintain their position of pointing out electoral fraud in 2019, despite the FGE ruling indicating that “There was no manipulation.”

For his part, the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Freddy Mamani Laura, expressed his gratitude for the expert work, which “only demonstrates the truth that was wanted to be known. There is no doubt that the OAS was part of the coup d’état” , He said.
