Under the motto "God, fatherland, people", Luis Fernando Camacho and Marco Pumari, the main leaders of the “civic movement” that is attributed the responsibility of the overthrow of the bolivian president, Evo Morales, agreed to candidatear together in the elections next may. Camacho aspire to the presidency and Pumari, vice president. As both lack of party, were opened to the possibility of being nominated “for any type of alliance, citizen movement or political party, subject to prior mutual consensus”. Several shops policies minors had already been paid to give legal form to the candidacy of the “winners of Evo”.
Camacho and Pumari called to form a united front against the “narcogobierno” above and for a new State “without racism, without rancor, without hatred historical or ghosts exist, created in the imagination of the ideologists of the MAS (Movement to Socialism)”, such as “ the division east-west, field-city or left-right.”
at The same time, vetoed the participation in front of the “traditional politicians who have betrayed the good faith of the citizens, expressed in the vote, or who have allegedly colluded with the narcogobierno. They are not fit”. Alluded as well to the leaders of the political opposition during the 14 years of the Morales Government, as Carlos Mesa and Samuel Doria Medina, who prepare their own candidates for the coming elections.

Camacho and Pumari scored well, separately, in the surveys of voting intentions in recent weeks, beating the other opponents to be Moral, but without being able to be placed above the MAS, that will define their candidates on the 19 of January. The surveys measured individual civic leaders, because the first political rapprochement between them had ended in a thunderous failure. At the beginning of December, Camacho said he would not go to the elections with Pumari and then released the audio of a conversation with this one, which criticized him for having asked, in exchange for their support, $ 250,000, and the control of the Customs of Potosi, the region of the Pumari is a native. This did not deny having had this conversation, but he said that he wanted the money to fund his election campaign and that the nomination of a representative civic in the direction of the Customs regional was a “vindication of the people of Potosi”. Accused Camacho of being the one who recorded it, something that this he denied.
This fracture caused the concern of certain economic elites and social believe that only Camacho and Pumari together, they can avoid the MORE pull the head again. At the document launch of its campaign, the two politicians apologized “for all the mistakes we have committed, and to them we express our determination and commitment not to repeat them”.
Other actors of the mobilization against Evo Morales, as Waldo Albarracin, rector of the public university of La Paz, criticized the leaders of the civic committees by “taking advantage of these charges, that should be sacred, to go to the electoral office,” and for wanting “to take a victory that belongs to all the bolivian people”.
Luis Fernando Camacho, 40, called “Macho Camacho” by his followers, comes from the business elite of Santa Cruz, the most prosperous region and with less indigenous to the country that has defied permanently the control of the political capital, La Paz. It is a fervent catholic, a radical opponent of Morales, and, as many santa cruz, in favor of introducing federalism in the country (a topic that has not been mentioned in the last time). Has put several relatives own and employees of businesses in the Government of Jeanine Añez.
Frame Pumari, for its part, has 38 years and directed the middle classes of the city of Potosi, which are not considered indigenous; Potosi is much poorer than in Santa Cruz, but it is also prone to federalism, because it feels historically abandoned by the Governments of The Peace. Pumari and their “civic potosinos” also have representatives in the interim Government.Updated Date: 31 December 2019, 21:00
