The coup-born regime tries to impede the participation of the Socialist presidential candidate Luis Arce.
Luis Arce, the presidential candidate of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), denounced Friday that Bolivia's interim government is trying to obstruct his participation in the next elections by filing allegations of corruption against him.
"People who know me know that I have never stained my hands. My conscience is calm," Arce said and added that "the intention of all that is clear: they want me not to participate in the elections."
On Jan. 21, prosecutor Heidi Gil announced that she would expand the investigation into an alleged diversion of resources from the Indigenous Development Fund (Fondioc).
In this case, prosecutors are targeting some former officials of President Evo Morales administration (2006-2019), among whom are former Minister of Economy Luis Arce and former Minister of the Presidency Juan Ramon Quintana.
