MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Ex-Bolivian president Evo Morales on Wednesday attacked findings by the Organization of American States (OAS) that there were serious irregularities during Bolivia’s Oct. 20 election, which sparked protests leading to his ouster.

“The OAS took a political decision, not a technical or legal one,” Morales told a news conference in Mexico City, where he arrived to take asylum on Tuesday. “The OAS is in the service of the North American empire.”
