Vargas pointed out “we are responsible and we have elected out representatives, therefore, these misters that have been elected by us – because I also voted – they should assume their responsibility with the Bolivian people”.
The military chief considered that when all of them were elected to represent Bolivians they became directly responsible for resolving the obstacles facing the citizens.
“We have deposited our confidence in them, and now they have to show us that the confidence that we deposit was logical, and that they will look for good solutions for our homeland”.
In regards to the call made by the military archbishop, Gonzalo del Castilla, to the Armed Forces and the Police, saying that they are the institutions that should guarantee peace in the country, he commented “the Armed Forces never prepare themselves for guaranteeing peace: they are always a bastion of guarantee within the framework of the Political Constitution of the State”.
The declarations by the military chief to the media were made as possibilities of dialogue were opening up between the different political parties, under the mediation of the Catholic Church, in order to resolve the most conflictive themes that confront Bolivians.
