Bolivia's former president and electoral candidate, Carlos de Mesa, has stated: "in Bolivia we have managed to unleash a dictatorship that was on the way to an authoritarian government. The way now is to build a true democracy. According to De Mesa, "Latin America requires renewed democratic responses for a networked society that grows in its demands.

The former president and current candidate, who is in Spain these days, has explained in this #Videoanalysis FAES that with the departure of Evo Morales, "tied to a fraud and an authoritarianism that was on the way to a dictatorship," the country has lived a critical moment in political terms.

In his opinion, what happened in Colombia, Ecuador or Chile has to do with the emerging middle classes, "with a society that is beginning to question democracy and its model. "I believe that in the political and social spheres, Latin America requires democratic responses, renewed, of transformation, understanding that we are a society in networks that is growing in its demands and in its demand for quality of life," he said.

De Mesa has shown his satisfaction in affirming that Bolivia has succeeded in "unleashing a dictatorship that was on the way to an authoritarian government" to continue saying that from now on "the way is to build a true democracy".
