The pretext of the coup was election fraud and the fringe right-wingers who installed themselves obviously felt the need to say they'd hold elections. Yet these did not come freely. Bolivians protested relentlessly for these elections under threat of state-sanctioned violence that produced a few massacres. The 'government' kept promising and delaying the election until they finally relented.am I missing something here? generally democratic elections are not compatible with coups?
