The former president of Bolivia had expressed the desire to return to his country, after Luis Arce’s victory in Sunday’s elections.
Evo Morales, the former president of Bolivia who had been asylum in Argentina since December 2019, left this Friday for Venezuela.
The leader of the Movimiento Al Socialismo (MAS) left at 5:15 p.m. in an Embraer Lineage 1000 plane, with the colors of the Venezuelan state airline, and boarded for Caracas from the FBO VIP sector of the Ezeiza Airport, according to sources confirmed to Télam official and airport.
The former president had been asylum in Argentina since December 2019, after a brief visit to Mexico, after his departure from Bolivia, on November 10.
On Monday, after the MAS victory in the Bolivian presidential elections, he stated that his intention is to return to his country “sometime”.
“It is a matter of time. My great desire is to return to Bolivia,” said the former president, who if he returns to his country must appear before the Justice because he is accused of alleged genocide, terrorism, sedition, electoral fraud and rape, among others cases, many of them started by the transitory government of Jeanine Áñez, considered by Morales as a dictatorship.
The politician insisted that when that eventual return to his country takes place, which he left in November 2019 after leaving the Presidency denouncing a coup, his intention is to settle in his region, the Cochabamba Tropic area, and become a farmer.
And in another appearance, this Thursday, he requested the resignation of Luis Almagro as secretary general of the Organization of American States, whom he will take to the International Criminal Court for the report in which the body denounced irregularities in last year’s elections.
Bolivia closed its long electoral process this Friday with the proclamation of the triumph of the MAS, a result recognized by its main contender, Carlos Mesa, and the international community.
Luis Arce, former Minister of Economy, and David Choquehuanca, former Chancellor, were proclaimed as elected president and vice president, respectively, by the head of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), Salvador Romero, in an act in which the final results were presented of the official count.
The calculation gives Arce 55.1% of the votes, above the 50% plus one he needed to win in the first round, while Carlos Mesa, from Comunidad Ciudadana (CC), obtained 28.83% of the votes and Luis Fernando Camacho, from Creemos, on 14.
