Call For Unity in Bolivian Elections

La Paz, Feb 8 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian vice President Alvaro Garcia called for national unity in the coming regional election of April 4 and to consolidate the process of change begun in 2006.

  Interviewed by state radio and television Garcia explained that the strategy to advance towards community socialism vitally requires cohesion of social institutions.

The new society against capitalism and to which we aspire, he added, is based on democratizing political power; it is making the main decisions jointly with the social institutions. That is the importance of this consensus.

That is why it is of utmost importance to maintain unity and not play into the hands of the empire, that seeks to obtain division of social forces, he explained.

Garcia also expressed congratulations to the Plurinational Legislative Assembly that last week, barely a few days of meetings approved measures for debates, a law to elect authorities in el Chaco (Tarija) and composition of commission committees.

Next week, he added, will be decisive for the approval of a transitory measure for election of authorities of judicial power and the law against corruption.

Regarding this last issue, he expressed that the fear of the opposition has a retroactive nature that allows investigation of fortunes obtained by representatives of previous governments.

It will be a sever law but necessary to give warning of confronting this scourge (corruption) he added.

Those who got rich on resources of the State and people regardless of the party they belong to, he said, will be submitted to a legal guillotine and, in the end, land in jail.”
