Havana, Cuba.- Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel this Tuesday congratulated his Bolivian counterpart, Evo Morales, for being re-elected on Sunday.
On Twitter, the Cuban president stressed that the election win of Evo Morales and the Movement for Socialism (MAS) is a victory for Latin America, as well as for ‘the Plurinational Bolivia and its work of broad, deep and progressive social justice.’
Diaz-Canel noted that Evo Morales won for the fourth time in the history of the Bolivian elections, despite the media war by the continental right.
Likewise, he highlighted that Bolivia continues focusing on a left model within the Latin American political context.
With over 97% of minutes checked, Morales won the 2019 presidential elections in the first ballot, after reaching 46.86% of votes; meanwhile the Community Citizen (CC) party candidate, Carlos Mesa, reached 36.72%.
