What’s going on in Bolivia? Bye bye Evo Morales

Give me context…After 14 years in power with a successful government, the president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, has been forced to resign and flee the country. Why?!

Rigged elections?

Morales won the elections in October but people believe they were rigged. How? There was a 24-hour break during the vote count due to alleged technical problems and election monitors found “clear manipulation” of the voting system.

Consequences.

  1. Very violent protests.
  2. The police and military officers started to turn on him and have supported protesters.
  3. 3 dead and many injured.

What now?

He’s left for Mexico – where he’s been granted political asylum (it’s usually granted when someone needs to flee their country for political motives).

In the meantime, no one is currently running a country of 11 million people as the VP also resigned.
