WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 26th February, 2020) Bolivia may face logistical challenges as it rushes to prepare for the upcoming presidential election that is about two months away, a senior State Department official told reporters.
"As the president at the TSE [Tribunal Superior Electoral] says, one way or the other they'll be ready, but it's a challenge," the official said on Tuesday when asked if the biggest red flag right now is that Bolivia may not be logistically capable of holding elections.
Former Bolivian President Evo Morales stepped down from his position last November after being pressed by the military and left the country after the opposition challenged the results of the October 20 election. His government then resigned, with opposition senator Jeanine Anez becoming the interim leader of the country.
