After more than three weeks of general protest in the country, the President of the Republic of Bolivia, Evo Morales, resigned this Sunday, November 10, 2019. A decision that plunges the country into a phase marked by great uncertainty.

At the head of the country for almost fourteen years, Evo Morales could not contain this wave of protests that began to spread over the territory of Bolivia. The president, after a cascade of resignation of his allies including that of two ministers and a dozen senators, had to yield. He announced his resignation on national television.

Thousands of Bolivians were in the streets to express their joy following the decision of their now “ex president”. However, the Cuban, Argentinian and Venezuelan governments, the main allies of President Evo Morales, have condemned what they consider to be a “coup d’etat”. Mexico has even decided to grant asylum to the socialist leader, according to his Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard.
