Bolivian former president expressed strong disapproval of what he described as a new attack by the Eletoral Tribunal members aligned with the ruling party, who, behind the back of the people and under the cover of police repression against their supporters, rejected their legal recourse to uphold the legality of the Lauca Ñ Congress.

In response to what he viewed as a political act of hostility towards the indigenous and popular movement, as well as an assault on democracy, Morales further asserted that the government is utilizing the TSE and the judiciary to accomplish what the coup plotters failed to do, which is to undermine and dismantle the MAS-IPSP.
