Tis rigor and not law

Bolivia and the OAS report UPDATED

Bolivia is a fun place this weekend for sure, but the reason why Evo Morales has capitulated and agreed to new Presidential elections in Bolivia isn’t directly due to the street scenes of yesterday and more about the preliminary findings of Organization of American States (OAS) report on the election that was published early this morning. Here’s the moneyline (translated):
into account the statistical projections, it is possible that the candidate
Morales has finished in first place and the candidate Mesa in second. However, it is statistically improbable
that Morales has obtained the 10% difference in order to avoid a second round.”
In other words, Evo cheated and has been caught as close to red-handed as our complex electronic world lets us get.

UPDATE Sunday afternoon: Evo Morales has just announced that he will resign as President.
