Earlier this month, Evo Morales announced his resignation after... Еще several weeks of protests over the results of the October 20 elections. Senator Jeanine Anez declared herself an interim president at a Parliament session after Morales fled to Mexico. The extraordinary session was boycotted by Morales' socialist party (MAS). The departure of Morales and Anez' recognition by Senate as the new president increased tensions between supporters and opponents of the former leader.
