Nationalist Revolutionary Movement of the People


Nationalist Revolutionary Movement of the People

The Nationalist Revolutionary Movement of the People ( Movimiento Nacionalista Revolucionary del Pueblo , MNRP) was founded in April 1965 by Jaime Arellano Castañeda following a split in the Revolutionary Nationalist Movement. The objective of the Nationalist Revolutionary Movement of the People was to fight the right-wing military dictatorship of General René Barrientos Ortuño. [1]

The MNRP was a left nationalist party and was opposed both oligarchism and colonialism, and it advocated the replacement of feudal structures by a progressive system under which natural resources would be exploited mainly by the state and the public sector would be complemented by a true national bourgeoisie. It was advocated an alliance of classes (and not the Marxist idea of class struggle) because the formation of a national state "requires the consensus of all classes"; and relations with all countries according to the national need, and "militant solidarity" with the non-aligned countries of the third world. [2]

The MNRP took part in elections in 1966 backing Mario Díez de Medina [3] and in 1978 backing Jaime Arellano Castañeda. [4]

In 1979 the MNRP reintegrated with historical Revolutionary Nationalist Movement led by Víctor Paz Estenssoro.
