The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, has announced his resignation this November 10 after an escalation of tension that resulted in a wave of resignations in the South American country.
Previously, both the head of the Armed Forces and the general commander of the Bolivian Police had suggested the resignation of the president in two messages.
Shortly before, Evo had called for new general elections in Bolivia "to seek peace" and in accordance with a suggestion from the Organization of American States (OAS).
"All for life, all for the country, for democracy and also for social justice," said the president.
However, Morales condemned that the civic groups have not accepted the dialogue proposed by his Government and, although new elections were announced and several of his demands were guaranteed, "now they reject everything" and ask for his "resignation."
"This is conspiring against democracy, this is a coup d'etat," condemned the Bolivian head of state.
«I am giving up so that my brothers and sisters do not continue to be persecuted. The fight does not end here. The humble, the poor we will continue with our struggle, it is my obligation to seek this pacification. I hope Mesa and Camacho, understand my message: don't hurt, don't hurt poor people. Our desire is for social peace to return. I have the obligation to find again the peace of the Bolivian people, ”Evo declared at a press conference.
