Population census postponed until 2024, sparking protests in Bolivia’s regions

The National Institute of Statistics (INE) announced that the population and housing census will be carried out in 2024, as its technical and logistical preparation requires at least three and a half years. This postponement generated a wave of rejection at the national level from opposition and pro-government legislators, to the extent that elected authorities in Santa Cruz declared an emergency, and some analysts and politicians said that the postponement is intended to avoid the debate on the fiscal pact or redistribution of economic resources.
