MEPs to call for reconciliation to stop violent clashes in Bolivia 

In a resolution to be put to the vote on Thursday, MEPs are expected to call for an end to violence and new presidential elections in Bolivia.

Following the contested outcome of the presidential elections on 20 October that triggered weeks of violent street protests, Bolivia remains polarised between those supporting the unseated president Evo Morales and the opposition.

In her statement on the developments in Bolivia, the High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini called on all parties to make efforts to reconcile their differences quickly and to avoid further violence.

Parliament’s resolution will wrap up the plenary debate on the situation in Bolivia held earlier this month.


Procedure: non-legislative resolution

2019/2896(RSP)

Debate: Wednesday, 13 November

Vote: Thursday, 28 November
