Meanwhile, the Socialist presidential candidate continues to lead the voting intention figures.
Bolivia’s coup-born regime led by Jeanine Añez filed criminal lawsuits against former President Evo Morales, the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) lawmaker Betty Yañiquez, and the Bolivian Workers' Center (COB) secretary Juan Carlos Huarachi.
Besidesbeingaccused of attackingpublichealth, theseleftistleaders are accused of fomenting an "escalation of armedviolencepreparedandfinanced by Evo Morales," according to Interior MinisterYerko Núñez.
To justify its government's actions, this official showed images of Yañiquez during a march and photographs of Huarachi at events with Morales.
As part of its media show, the U.S.-backed regime also presented as evidence a tweet through which Evo Morales salutes the protests of Bolivian citizens.
"This demonstrates that he is the one who is the architect of all these criminal acts," the Interior Minister stressed.

"We salute the great effort of the people who, despite all the difficulties, protested today in favor of life and democracy. It is the great conscience of Bolivians who know that the great problems will be solved with unity for our dignity and sovereignty. We will move forward."
On Tuesday, Bolivians took to the streets to protest against the postponement of the general elections, a maneuver whereby the Añez regime seeks to both continue in power and favor the articulation of the far-right forces.
Currently, the Bolivian political and economic elites are concerned about the future of their regime, for the Socialist presidential candidate Luis Arce continues to lead the latest voting intention figures.
