The Electoral Observation Mission of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Bolivia strongly condemns the acts of violence that have been recorded in various parts of the country over the last days and makes an urgent call for calm.

Violence has no place in democracy, that is why the Mission urges all political and social actors, as well as citizens in general, to wait calmly and in a peaceful environment for the results of the audit carried out by a technical team of the OAS General Secretariat.

In that sense, the Mission notes with great concern the abundant false information circulating in social networks, including that which seeks to damage the reputation of the audit and its technicians.

The Mission will remain on the ground until the technical team of the OAS General Secretariat concludes the analysis of the electoral integrity in the elections of October 20. The team is currently receiving and analyzing information from different sources.
