OAS to deploy EOM to regional and municipal elections in Bolivia

WASHINGTON, USA – The Organization of American States (OAS) will deploy an Electoral Observation Mission to the election of departmental, regional and municipal political authorities that will take place on March 7 in Bolivia, in which governors and mayors will be elected, among other Bolivian authorities.

The Mission will be headed by the former electoral counselor of the Federal Electoral Institute of Mexico Rodrigo Alfonso Morales Manzanares, and will follow up on issues such as electoral organization, electoral technology, electoral justice, campaign financing, and the political participation of women and indigenous groups.

The OAS group of 16 observers will arrive in Bolivia on March 3, and will meet with electoral authorities, government representatives, candidates, political parties, academics, and members of civil society, both virtually and in person.

Following the elections on Sunday, the Mission will publish a preliminary report with its observations and recommendations. This will be the twentieth Electoral Mission deployed by the Organization in the country since the first in 1966.
