Brazil's foreign ministry said in a statement Thursday that it expects a rigorous audit of Bolivia's elections.

According to Itamaraty, the expectation of the Brazilian government is that the audit "will produce serious and rigorous results on the legitimacy of the claim, binding on the parties involved, with the aim of respecting the sovereign desire of the Bolivian people in choosing their leaders ".

The audit process began on Thursday and is carried out by a mission of the Organization of American States (OAS), composed of 30 experts from various countries.

The work is expected to take a maximum of 12 days to complete.

The objective is to verify if there was data manipulation and fraud in favor of the Movement to Socialism (MAS) party of the current president Evo Morales.

At the document, Itamaraty says that Brazil reiterates that the Brazilian government has been following with concern all developments related to Bolivia's general elections held on October 20. Therefore, he adds, Brazil supports the realization of "a democratic, transparent, fair and free electoral process that honors the sovereign will of the Bolivian people."

Last Friday (24), Itamaraty published that until the audit process is completed, Brazil will not recognize Evo Morales as the legitimate president of Bolivia.
