Luis Arce, the candidate of the Movement for Socialism (MAS ), the party of both politicians, was elected in the first round on October 18th. Morales’ declaration came on a TV show in Argentina, where he is staying.

“Quite a few dates are being debated. I have a proposal from social organizations, that perhaps on the 9th I would be entering to arrive at Chimoré on the 11th,” Morales declared during the TV show, where a tribute was paid to the former Argentine president, Néstor Kirchner, 10 years after his death. “Because on November 11 I left Chimoré to save my life. Now I will return for life, thanks to the unity of the Bolivian people.”
