The reason for the protests was a closed meeting of the Senate – the upper house of Congress, where a majority of senators voted to allow the President of Paraguay Horacio Cartes to re-nominate for election.

A meeting of the chamber of deputies, the lower house of Congress on this issue was held on 1 April, with the majority of deputies also were inclined to allow Karasu to run again.

“Carried out a coup. We will resist and we urge people to resist together with us,” said the opposition Senator Desiree Masi.

The Constitution of Paraguay prohibits renomination in the presidential election to prevent possible resurgence of dictatorship in this country.

Paraguayan dictator General Alfredo Stroessner rules from 1954 to 1989-th year and eight times re-elected to the presidency.
