The national government, through the Vice Ministry of Communication, denied that before April 18 there was a previous meeting between leaders of the Unity Pact and the presidents Luis Arce and David Choquehuanca. A leader had informed this medium last week that the meeting had taken place and that the “official meeting” that took place last Monday in the city of La Paz was prepared at that meeting.
The Vice Ministry of Communication informed EL DEBER that this appointment did not exist and that the leaders only attended the meeting on April 18 at the headquarters of the Single Trade Union Confederation of Rural Workers of Bolivia (Csutcb). The government entity did not go into further details.
Today, this journalistic house published a note in which it is mentioned that there was a meeting prior to April 18 between leaders of the Unity Pact and the presidents. That version was collected for informational purposes after a statement by a leaderwho told this media that there was an appointment and in it, among other things, the decision not to press for the change of ministers was agreed upon.
At the meeting on April 18, the issue of management and the inclusion of the Pact of Unity in coordination with ministries was addressed. The meeting was attended by Luis Arce and David Choquehuanca. Evo Morales, as leader of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), was invited to the meeting, but did not show up.
