He did, in his own words, so as not to divide the democratic vote and thus make way for the Movement to Socialism MAS, to end up winning the election, which will be held in exactly one month.
Añez did not say or imply with whom he will ally after this decisionIf with Carlos Mesa, first in the polls to face the MAS or with Luis Fernando Camacho who would be under Mesa, so it is not yet known where the votes of the resigning candidate could go.
The president and her political allies would have defined this decline before the evident drop in support from the population in a wide-ranging survey that showed its decline to fourth place.
