219

Political parties in Bolivia have agreed to hold the general elections delayed by the coronavirus pandemic by early September.

The electoral tribunal said on Tuesday that an agreement had been reached with the country’s political parties to fix the new polls for September 6, 2020.

The election is a re-run of a contentious vote late last year which prompted nationwide protests and led to the resignation of long-time leftist leader Evo Morales.

The repeat ballot had been originally planned for May.
