Bolivia: Interim president Anez calls for general election in first national address

The newly-elected interim president of Bolivia Jeanine Anez called for fresh elections in her first address to the nation in the government palace in La Paz on Wednesday while supporters of former Bolivian President Evo Morales were met with tear gas as they took to the streets of the Capital to protest. «This presidential mandate is of a strictly provisional nature and will have two fundamental... Еще objectives, namely the repeal of the unconstitutional sentence 0034/2017 of November 28, 2017 and the call for general elections in the shortest possible time,» said Anez who added that the power transition in Bolivia had not been a coup. On Sunday, Bolivian President Evo Morales announced his resignation, following weeks of unrest in the wake of the disputed October 20 presidential election. Morales said he had received threats from opposition leaders and was eventually forced by the country's military to step down.
