Evo Morales resigns before opposition attack


The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, announced his resignation on Sunday after a violent wave perpetrated by opposition groups who are unaware of the election results carried out on October 20.

After strong violent waves against militants and leaders of the Movement To Socialism (MAS), intimidation of journalists, burning of residences and betrayal of political allies and members of the National Police, the country suffers a political crisis.

In a statement, the Armed Forces (FF.AA.) indicated that to recover the stability of the nation, a change in the presidency is necessary:

"We suggest the president to resign his mandate allowing the pacification and maintenance of the stability of Bolivia," said the commander in chief of the Armed Forces, William Kaiman.

Morales suffered the collapse of his cabinet after massive resignations such as the cases of the Vice Minister of Tourism, Marcelo Arze; the president of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal, Maria Eugenia Choque; the Minister of Planning, Mariana Prado; as well as the senator elected by Potosi, Rene Joaquino; Governor Juan Carlos Cejas and Mayor Williams Cervantes, for the department.

Although the former Bolivian president called on international organizations such as the United Nations (UN) and the Organization of American States (OAS) to audit the election results and summoned all social sectors to a Dialogue Table, ultra-right groups remained deployed in the streets assaulting the population.

Morales leaves a country with high rates of human development, guaranteeing the fundamental rights of the population and with an economic growth of 4.5 percent, according to the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).
