Bolivia Holds Judicial Elections

LA PAZ – Bolivia is holding judicial elections on Sunday, with seats on the Andean nation’s highest courts up for grabs.

“I know there’s going to be a high turnout because the only way to change the Bolivian justice system is by participating in this election of judges,” President Evo Morales said.

Morales spoke with reporters after voting at a polling place in Villa 14 de Septiembre, the city in the central region of Cochabamba that is his political stronghold.

More than 6.4 million people are eligible to vote for the members of the Supreme Court of Justice, the Constitutional Court, the Agroenvironmental Court and the Magistrates Council.

A total of 96 candidates, all of whom were nominated by the National Assembly and the majority of whom are governing party members, are vying for the seats.

Organization of American States (OAS) and Union of South American Countries (UNASUR) are monitoring the vote.

The OAS and UNASUR missions said Bolivia “is unique in all the planet” in electing the judges on high courts, Morales told reporters.
