The Communist Party of Uruguay is supporting, once more, party member and labor leader Oscar Andrade in next year’s October presidential elections, as the candidate of the leftist Broad Front (Frente Amplio) to which the Communist Party belongs along with twelve other parties. Andrade is currently Secretary General of SUNCA, the United National Union of Construction and Allied Workers. He served in the Uruguayan Congress from 2014 to 2016.

In its statement of nomination of Andrade, the Communist Party emphasized the danger of rising fascist movements in Latin America and worldwide, as exemplified by the Trump administration and the election of Jair Bolsonaro as president of Uruguay’s outsize neighbor, Brazil.
