La Paz - The Bolivian Senate will hold a session on Wednesday to discuss the immediate call for new general elections, after suspending a previous call due to the wave of violence unleashed in the country.
Eva Copa, president of the Senate, announced that assembly members are ready to go to the polls, and hope to pass a bill to fulfill the mandate of the people.
Copa blamed the recent suspension of the session of the Plurinational Legislative Assembly (ALP) on the need to pacify the situation and foster spaces for dialogue to overcome the prevailing social unrest.
Senators of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) are proposing to annul the October 20 general elections, won by former president Evo Morales, who was forced to resign due to a wave of violence against his followers.
The parliamentary factions of the right-wing Democratic Unity Party and the Christian Democratic Party ruled out attending the session, claiming that MAS would reject the resignation of Morales, who has granted asylum in Mexico, to enable his return to the country.
Since the November 10 coup d'état against the indigenous leader, the decisions of the legislative body have been rejected by the majority in Congress.
