Evo Morales Prevented from Running for Senate

The Tribunal Supremo Electoral, the country’s highest electoral court, announced on Thursday, February 20, that former President Evo Morales is not qualified to run for the Senate in the upcoming elections.

In their official statement, the court ruled that Morales and two other candidates did not meet the residency requirements.

According to Reuters, Morales is currently residing in Argentina.

Morales fled Bolivia in November after massive protests following the October presidential elections, which many claimed were tainted by fraud.
