SYRIZA EMP Sofia Sakorafa about the elections in Bolivia. The massive participation, the wonderful atmosphere and the enthusiasm of the Bolivian people in the electoral process have enabled me to leave the country with a deep faith that in this perpetual struggle they will be the winners.

I consider myself very lucky for experiencing, as an envoy of GUE/NGL and SYRIZA party, the electoral procedure in Bolivia. Firstly I want to emphasize that I witnessed the full respect for the national groups of the population, the unhindered and balanced participation and representation as well as the marked effort to encourage female representation. I believe we have much to learn about encountering the problems in Europe we call “minority issues”

Secondly, I want to emphasize the sense that I got regarding Bolivian citizens’ perception of Democracy. It is a unique view, very different from our culture and expressed in a simple way, namely that Democracy is theirs, they defend it and they consider transparency none negotiable. I really wish this behavior and this deep, inner faith for democracy characterized many of the European procedures.  

I wish to salute on behalf of the European Parliament Members of SYRIZA Evo Morales for his re-election to the presidency for the third consecutive time. In addition I want to stress that this victory is not attributed solely to his unique personality, but it reflects the steadfastness of the Bolivian people to defend and to promote what they have achieved until today. The massive participation, the wonderful atmosphere and the enthusiasm of the Bolivian people in the electoral process have enabled me to leave the country with a deep faith that in this perpetual struggle they will be the winners.
