The foreign ministers of Argentina, Bolivia, and Mexico have all said the leader of the OAS regional bloc played a toxic role ahead of what is set to be the largest vote in Mexican history, taking place on Sunday.

The spat began when Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard slammed Luis Almagro’s leadership of the Organization of American States (OAS), a regional bloc of 35 countries in the Americas and the Caribbean.

The performance of the current OAS secretary-general, Mr. Almagro, has been one of the worst in history,” Ebrard told reporters on Friday. He has acted repeatedly without consulting the member states. He therefore acts as if he were autonomous.

Ebrard added that he would allow OAS officials to monitor the election on Sunday, despite his personal views on Almagro.

Rogelio Mayta, the minister of foreign affairs of Bolivia, tweeted that he agreed with Ebrard about Almagro’s tenure in the OAS being the worst.

Mayta wrote that Almagro “supported the coup and corruption of the de facto government of Bolivia,” referring to the interim government that ruled between 2019 and 2020, after President Evo Morales was deported from the country.

Mexico is in the midst of the largest election in its history. Voters are choosing candidates to fill 20,415 positions across the country, including the whole of the 500-seat Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the nation’s parliament, and governors in 15 states.

The process has been marred by a spike in political violence, however. According to consulting firm Etellekt Consultores, 91 politicians have been killed, including 36 candidates, since September 2020.

The US has been using the OAS as a cannon fodder for their malignant policies in Latin Americans and instrumental in the UN; paying the traitors with meagre frijoles, and this whitewash attitude they call it the Monroe’s Doctrine

1982 during the Falklands war, the USA sided with Britain against Argentina, in spite of the OAS protocols; that terrible time had been a godsend call to lose faith in the benefactor Uncle Sam.
