Legislators from the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) today branded the former president and leader of the Citizen Community (CC), Carlos Mesa, as an “immature kid” and silenced him, whom they accuse of blocking the election of the new Ombudsman. The CC blamed the MAS for not allowing an independent authority to be elected.

“I regret that some politicians, as well as Mr. Mesa, are acting like an immature child, imposing decisions from outside the assembly members who even agree to elect the Ombudsman,” said MAS senator Leonardo Loza, through of a video broadcast on their social networks.

Yesterday, Mesa said that “with firmness and unity” the CC bench “managed to stop the official intention of electing a MAS defender.” She assured that the popular will that an independent authority demands will not be negotiated.

In that sense, Loza pointed out that with these attitudes it is shown that the Bolivian people are not thought of or acted as mandated by the Political Constitution of the State, on the contrary, they are opposed only so that the Plurinational Legislative Assembly (ALP) and the government fail. of the MAS.

“They receive a call (the opposition parliamentarians) and (later) they block the election of the Ombudsman (in the ALP),” Loza said.

He called on the opposition legislators not to obey political instructions from “outside” and to put on the shirt of the Bolivian people to elect the new Ombudsman.

For his part, the president of the Senate, Andrónico Rodríguez, attacked the former president and told him that the ALP is carrying out a process of electing and appointing an Ombudsman, but not political candidates.

“What inconsistencies, Mr. Carlos Mesa, I ask you not to politicize the process of electing and appointing the Ombudsman, it would be better if you shut up, because you are not telling the truth before the country,” Rodríguez said through his Twitter account.

He questioned the CC legislators for expressing their disagreement in the final stage with a series of contradictions: first, they reject the entire process alleging that the seven applicants are supposedly from the MAS; then they announce that they will not make the election viable; they say they will vote blank; and then the CC leader instructs his assembly members to vote in favor of the candidate Evelin Cossio.

Senator Andrea Barrientos (CC) blamed the MAS for not making the election of an independent Ombudsman viable and for the pretense of imposing the election of the candidate Pedro Callisaya.

“President of the Senate ordering a former President and leader of the opposition to shut up, that is the “democracy” of the MAS. The MAS broke the possibility of having an Ombudsman for Bolivians by looking for a MAS Ombudsman, ”said Barrientos on his social networks.

He said that the ruling party intends to incur another abuse by imposing on its applicant, therefore from its bench this deception will not be allowed. He indicated that the election of the new Ombudsman must be impartial, transparent and meritocratic.

Of seven applicants, Callisaya, Cossio and Porfirio Machado were the most voted in the ALP, but none obtained the 109 votes necessary to assume the position of Ombudsman. For that reason, a fourth intermission was declared in the ALP session.
