In this way, the preliminary results of the elections will not be known as quickly on the night of Sunday, October 18, as the TSE had promised, but will go directly to the official count in a slower process.

“On Sunday night we will not have the official and final result. This is going to take us a few additional hours and it is important that citizens have patience because the result will be reliable, (although) a little slower, ”Romero noted.

He justified that “the country cannot risk having results that do not generate certainty” and that, with the decision adopted at the last minute, “there will be a result without a shred of doubts”, an essential requirement in such a polarized context.

Although the legal deadline for the dissemination of official data is five days, Romero explained that he instructed the regional electoral courts to redouble their efforts and achieve receive as many minutes as possible. This with the aim of having the largest possible volume of official data as soon as possible.

He also reported that Bolivian citizens may directly follow the official count through the page of the electoral body and indicated that the decision was communicated to political parties and international observer missions that arrived in the country.

Finally, he explained that within the framework of transparency, the public vote count, the photographing of the voting records and that the parties have access to copies of them.
