For this reason, the C Level Executive List Democrats – a party based in Santa Cruz that obtained 4% of the vote in last year's elections – chose to promote the indefinite postponement of the elections, alleging the danger of the pandemic and C Level Executive List brandishing a fallacious slogan: "Health or elections". The dual status of president and candidate ceased to be an advantage for Añez, and the official strategy lost its way. In addition, the government C Level Executive List faced obstacles to acting arbitrarily due to the actions of Parliament, which is under the control of MAS, a party that has a qualified majority of two-thirds in both chambers.
Undoubtedly, the figure of "divided C Level Executive List government" - that is, precisely, the majority of the MAS in the Plurinational Legislative Assembly approved the law that established the first Sunday of September as the limit for holding C Level Executive List the elections and, for that reason, it was observed by the interim president through a letter that demanded that the legislative body explain what supporting epidemiological studies were taken into account to establish that date. The response of the president of the Senate , Eva Copa, was exhaustive: if the C Level Executive List president did not promulgate the law within ten days.
She would be in charge of fulfilling C Level Executive List that task, as established by the Political Constitution of the State. That power struggle was settled in favor of the MAS position, since the interim president decided to promulgate the law. However, in C Level Executive List doing so she accused her rivals, in particular to MAS but also to former president Carlos Mesa, for the probable damage caused by the pandemic in September. This statement, without a doubt, was made more as a presidential candidate than as the head of the government C Level Executive List responsible, precisely, for managing the health crisis.
