The bill called for a "credible and professional" election body "in order to pacify the country and redirect democratic institutionality".

In a press conference from exile in Mexico City, former Bolivian President Evo Morales caled on the global community to intervene in Bolivia to stop what he called a "genocide" against indigenous people.

Chatting with reporters, Anez stated she hoped the caretaker authorities's proposal - which additionally seeks the annulment of the unique poll and the formation of a brand new election tribunal - would type the premise for producing "a national consensus".

Now led by a caretaker government, Bolivia is grappling to mend stark divisions between Morales supporters and opponents seeking to move beyond his almost 14-year rule.

He stepped down on November 10 under pressure from protesters, civil groups, security forces and allies, as well as an global audit that found serious irregularities in the election count and cast doubt on his announced outright victory.

"We have developed a basic bill".

"We can not allow elections to be held by decree when the Legislative Assembly is functioning legally and legitimately", said Copa. "But there will be elections in the country; we guarantee it".

Conflict in the region of Cochabamba and the high-altitude city of El Alto has rattled Bolivia over the last week since Morales' departure, with clashes at a gas power plant blockade on Tuesday leaving six people dead.

At least 32 people have been killed in violence since the Oct 20 election, according to the IACHR. The plant provides fuel to more than two million people in El Alto and neighbouring La Paz.

In a press conference on Wednesday, government minister Arturo Murillo claimed Morales was continuing to stoke unrest.

'In the coming hours we will file an worldwide lawsuit on this, ' Murillo said.

"This massacre.is part of a genocide that is happening in our beloved Bolivia", Morales, the country's first indigenous president, told a press conference in Mexico City, where he fled after resigning the presidency 10 days ago amid mounting unrest sparked by his contested re-election to a controversial fourth term on Oct 20. The army said protesters used explosives, weapons and homemade bazookas in the clashes.

But she has insisted Morales will not be allowed to participate, saying if he returns to Bolivia he will instead face justice for his alleged crimes.

"The dictatorship. today caused 6 deaths of fellow brothers in a coordinated operation with the U.S.", Morales tweeted late Tuesday.
