Exiled Bolivian President Evo Morales Calls for “National Dialogue”

HeadlineNov 14, 2019

In Mexico City, exiled Bolivian President Evo Morales said Wednesday he’s willing to return to Bolivia to join a “national dialogue,” after he was forced by the military to step down Sunday in what he’s described as a U.S.-backed coup d’état. Morales blamed the Washington, D.C.-based Organization of American States — the OAS — for his ouster, saying it falsely accused his government of vote tampering in last month’s presidential election.

Evo Morales: “The OAS made a political decision, not a technical or legal one. This is a report — now I have realized from the recommendations of some leftist brothers and sisters — that the OAS is not in the service of the people of Latin America, less so the social movements. The OAS is at the service of the North American empire.”
