Revolutionary Nationalist Movement–Julio
In 1971, the Revolutionary Nationalist Movement supported the far-Right coup triggered by Colonel Hugo Banzer Suárez, and the Party became officially a member of the regime, along with the party's traditional enemy, the Bolivian Socialist Falange. Víctor Paz Estenssoro, meanwhile, had difficulties in maintaining discipline over his own followers. When he and the military differed so sharply over policy in 1973 that he sought to withdraw the MNR representatives from the cabinet, a part of the politicians refused to leave office. This group continued to cooperate with the regime.
