In an interview with Papal Antagonist international correspondent Nathalia Watkins, FGV professor of International Relations Oliver Stuenkel analyzed the Bolivian political scene after the victory of Luis Arce, a former minister in the government of Evo Morales and also a member of the MAS (Movimento Ao Ao) Socialism).
“There is little chance that we will see a repetition of an authoritarian project, as we have seen in recent years in Bolivia,” says Stuenkel, pointing to the new president as “more pragmatic” and “less ideologized” than Morales.
According to the professor, “Arce’s challenge is to show that he is autonomous and independent” in relation to the ex-president, who resigned in 2019 from the position he held since 2006 after suspected fraud in the elections and who still polarizes the country with his attitude of savior of the motherland, being much loved and hated.
For Stuenkel, Arce “does not seem to be the type who would publicly criticize Jair Bolsonaro or who would do anything that would endanger Bolivia’s gas contract with Brazil, which is important for both countries.
Regarding the opposition, the professor said that “the parties from the center to the right are divided because there is a lack of clear leadership, someone who would be able to unify these two sides”.
