Bolivia’s interim government announced on Saturday it would postpone presidential elections originally slated for May 3 and institute a mandatory countrywide quarantine for 14 days as coronavirus spread across the Andean nation, APA reports quoting Reuters. 

The country’s electoral authority said in a statement it would “suspend the elections calendar” for 14 days to match the quarantine, but did not set a new date for the vote. 

The tribunal said it would work together with all of the country´s political parties and organizations to determine when to hold the election.
