Ahead of Sunday's presidential elections, Luis Arce told teleSUR how the current government has reduced poverty and improved the economy.

Poverty in Bolivia has declined due to the redistribution of wealth among the people, the minster of Economy of Bolivia, Luis Arce said on Friday.

In a televised interview with teleSUR, Arce confirmed that the country’s financial system had contradicted the doubts of the Bolivian neoliberal elite. 

Only two days before the Bolivian presidential election, the minister explained that fair distribution of wealth is the basis of Bolivian economy, while also assuring that indicators point to economic recovery. According to the Bolivian official, this is all rooted in the current president, Evo Morales’, social policies.

“When the economy is orientated around social policies is when we have the best results for the country,” said the minister in the interview with teleSUR.

This Sunday, Bolivia will take to the ballot boxes to vote for the next president. Incumbent President Evo Morales is expected to win by a landslide, this week polling at nearly 60 percent.
