La Paz, Dec 16 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian former presidential candidate Manfred Reyes Villa must testify on Wednesday for alleged attempt of computer manipulation to alter the results of the recent general elections.

  The commission of a possible offense was denounced on December 4, two days before the elections, by Minister of Government Alfredo Rada to the National Electoral Court (CNE).

That accusation against the representative of Progress Plan for Bolivia-National Convergence (PPB-CN) has, as a proof, a recording in which the supposed voice of the political representative talking to another person is heard.

According to an unedited recording presented by Rada, Reyes Villa promised $150 000 to an unknown person in exchange of reporting 21 percent above the electoral result in favor of the oppositionâ�Ös former candidate from a supposed computer data modification of the CNE.

Such increase should be at a national level or, at least, in four of the nine Bolivian departments.

The event was denounced by CNE President Antonio Costas to the Public Ministry.

Reyes Villa is also questioned for his past, when he was linked to military dictatorships and neoliberal governments as the one of Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada (2002-2003).

On December 6 elections, his party obtained 27 percent of the votes, way bellow half the percent of the ruling Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), of President Evo Morales.
