De facto goverment in Bolivia has Honduras coup advisers

La Paz, Jan 27 (Prensa Latina) The de facto government in Bolivia has the same communication strategic advisors for the May elections as those that were hired by the interim Honduran government for the coup against Manuel Zelaya.

According to the The Intercept diary, the coup in Bolivia against President Evo Morales on last November 10th is surprisingly similar to the one that overthrew the president of Honduras Manuel Zelaya.

The analysis reminds that Zelaya was taken out of the office by the military, only to be replaced by an interim government led by right-wing opposition forces, quickly consolidated in power through a controversial election process.

The same is happening in Bolivia now, after the authorities of the country, led by self-proclaimed president Jeanine Añez, hired the services of SLC Strategies.

Añez seeks a ‘communications strategic advisor’ for the new elections this year, to take place on May 3rd, and other interactions with the government of the United States.

The Intercept refers that the lobbying firm, formerly known as Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates, provided a work notably similar after having ousted Zelaya.

The diary explained that the interim Honduran government was helped to obtain the backing of those in charge of formulating the politics and the US media, while the country celebrated new elections.

‘The crisis in Bolivia reflects the 2009 coup in Honduras in many ways. Morales and Zelaya fortified links with Venezuela, raised minimum wages, expanded social services and opposed the privatization of the main industries’, it remarked.
