NDP, Green MPs raise concern over Canada’s trust in OAS election monitoring in Bolivia
'[Canada] should be going out of its way to ensure that what happened in Bolivia in the fall is something that the Bolivian people actually want,' says NDP MP Jack Harris.
Former Bolivian president Evo Morales, pictured in November 2019, resigned and went into exile in Mexico after losing the support of his country’s security forces following an October 2019 election controversially flagged by Organization of American States observers. A Global Affairs spokesperson says that Canada 'welcomes public scrutiny of democratic processes, including electoral observation missions.'
