Ayer se realizaron las primeras elecciones primarias de la historia de #Bolivia馃嚙馃嚧 y con los resultados el gobierno inaugur贸 el camino hacia las generales de octubre con un sabor amargo en la boca. Abro hilo 馃憞
El oficialismo lleg贸 golpeado por la pol茅mica habilitaci贸n del binomio Morales-Linera y sale igual: s贸lo asisti贸 a votar el 39% de sus militantes, es decir, 388 mil votos de los 991 posibles.Adem谩s, el 10% anularon o votaron en blanco. No alcanz贸 el caudal de votos que necesitaba
La oposici贸n jug贸 a deslegitimar la elecci贸n y, para los ojos de sus seguidores, sali贸 mejor parada. 7 de los 8 binomios opositores llamaron a no votar pero todos quedaron habilitados para las generales porque s贸lo era necesario un voto para pasar las primarias

THREAD: The US @StateDept released its annual #ReligiousFreedom report today. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here's where #LGBT issues come up in this year's reports.
#LGBT issues feature in this year's reports on Australia, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, the Maldives, Mauritania, New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Sudan, Syria & Turkey. (And I probably missed others.)
The report on #Australia stays pretty neutral in its discussion of the legalization of same-sex marriage and subsequent push for religious exemptions under Australian law. state.gov/documents/orga鈥

The representative for the #Netherlands is trying to shame #Russia into not using its veto to defend Bashar al-Asad's "mass atrocities". Best of luck ....
Amb. @nikkihaley asked about gas attacks and then attacks on the first-responders: "Who does this? Only a monster does this."

#Russia's hands are "covered in the blood of Syrian children", the Ambassador says, and "cannot be ashamed ... we have tried that before."
Amb. @nikkihaley attacks #Russia for its backing of #Asad, something "no civilized government" would do; its help in directing the siege-and-starve campaigns in #Syria; and its assistance to the broader war crimes.

The U.S. "will not be held hostage" to Moscow's veto.
