Spanish term or phrase:y esa es la difficultad para poder tomar el poder
I am translating a research work on Bolivian cocalero movement. I am having trouble translating certain phrases that I don´t fully understand in Spanish as I believe they may have several interpretations. Here goes the paragraph:
El presidente actual del FEJUVE reconoce que se trata de “una política cívica, vecinal, sindical de la ciudad de El Alto”, no partidaria y esta es la “dificultad para poder tomar el poder”.
and that (this, it) makes it difficult to be elected to office
Explanation: It's saying that the actual President of FEJUVE recognizes that they are dealing with a civic, unionized politics of the residents of ciudad de El Alto, which has not identified itself with any political party in particular, hence making it difficult to be elected to office.
