The coup d'etat was a success: Bolivian President Evo Morales resigned


On November 10, 2019, Bolivian President Evo Morales, a friend of Russia, announced his decision to resign. This happened against the background of the ongoing protests of the pro-American opposition and the riots that swept this Latin American country after October 20, 2019, when the next presidential and parliamentary elections were held there.


It should be noted that before this, Morales announced the introduction of a state of emergency and accused opponents of organizing a coup. He promised his supporters that he would not leave his post and would not resign under organized pressure. However, the leadership of the army, led by the commander of the Bolivian Armed Forces, Williams Romero, and the Bolivian workers' union convinced Morales that "the people need to be reassured."

Morales said that he decided to take such a step so that "our brothers and sisters, civil servants, are not subjected to attacks and threats." He emphasized that he would not leave the country after his resignation, and the struggle for "equality and peace" had not yet ended. In a farewell address, he expressed the hope that the unrest in Bolivia would end and that the responsibility for the lives of people lay with the opposition leaders.

After the resignation of Morales, almost all the top leaders of Bolivia announced their resignation: vice-president Alvaro Garcia Linera, head of the Senate Adriana Salvierrara and head of the Chamber of Deputies Victor Borda. After that, the second deputy speaker of the Senate, Janine Agnes, declared that the power in the country was transferred to her.

I will be in La Paz on Monday (November 11, 2019 - ed.) To formally take responsibility according to the procedure for transferring power to convene new elections

said Agnes.

We remind you that on October 25, 2019, the Higher Electoral Court of Bolivia announced the victory of Morales in the elections. Morales gained 47,08% of the vote, and his competitor, Carlos Diego Mesa Gisbert (born 12.09.1953) - 36,51%. After that, “suddenly” there was criticism from the Organization of American States (OAS), controlled by Washington, and the protests of the “deceived” began. That is, an aggressive and militant minority decided to take power from the peace-loving majority. After that, the tools of the “color revolution” began to work, which are well developed in other countries over the past decades. Rallies began, which turned into riots and the blocking of judicial, legislative and executive authorities.

It should be added that Mesa (journalist, historian and pro-American politician) was the president of Bolivia from October 17, 2003 to June 6, 2005. At the same time, Juan Evo Morales Ayma (Juan Evo Morales Ayma, born October 26.10.1959, 22) was President of Bolivia on January 2006, 400 (the Movement to Socialism party). This is the first statesman in XNUMX years (since the time of Spanish colonization) who is a representative of the indigenous population of the country - Aymara. Now in Bolivia, a new presidential election should be held.

    I think a big blow to Maduro, and generally a reminder of the need for fair elections to all world autocrats.

    That is, the aggressive and belligerent minority decided to take power from the peace-loving majority.

    - Here are the next, I hope democratic, elections will show whether this is so?

    It is necessary to lower the level of diplomatic relations and not recognize the new government. It's funny to hear about the new democratic elections.
    It is sad that Morales missed the army.

    Now in Bolivia, a new presidential election should be held.

    Unlucky Bolivia with the leaders. Apparently, Morales did not pull, a convincing victory did not work, but he will be replaced by a candidate with even less support. Indeed, in these elections they won even fewer votes. They will choose the "best of the worst." There is also outside interference.
    In fact, this is the "third round", as in Ukraine with Yushchenko. Where it leads? Remember how it started:



    and what it led to.

      Earlier, Morales lost the referendum on the right to run for a new term, but he nevertheless put forward his candidacy, having achieved the decision of the Constitutional Court. And then I couldn’t convincingly win the first round, it seems that I decided to “tighten up” the results, was under the fire of criticism, swept over. Pure delegation.
      Consistently, police, military, and even loyal unionists opposed him. As a result - not just resignation, but also the complete dismantling of the regime. The vice president and speakers of both chambers left their posts.
      Another resident went to the exit. Jogging. An example is instructive and absolutely understandable: no country can develop normally without a change of power.

        I hope this will serve as a lesson to Frau Merkel, she has stayed too long. smile

          Well, what to fool around? You understand the difference perfectly?

            Naturally, I understand. Wrong answer expected? sad

            An example is instructive and absolutely clear

            For whom is instructive? There is no direct correlation between the change of power and the development of the country. It is no coincidence that I wrote about Merkel. Compare with Italy (I think the comparison is correct), they regularly change there. And how are the results? Is it better in Italy?
            I do not defend Morales myself; it’s not enough to be a representative of an indigenous nationality; we must also be able to manage the country. Another thing worries. Arrest warrants are already in full swing there, stones are thrown on the streets and bonfires are burned. All this is very similar to Ukraine. Is that not with the green of officials, but painted with red paint. Now they are transplanting all the “bad” ones, and then they will start choosing the right and good ones among themselves. But tell me about it, about half voted for Morales. And now no one will listen to this half. What does this lead to? Look at Ukraine.

              Sorry for Morales. He leaves business.
              The conclusion is generally gloomy, but twofold:
              Not going to jail and not being shot -
              In a quiet house on the coast of Titicaki.
              Tried to “tighten up” - grief, shame and shame!
              The Bolivians turned away, got stuck!
              ... Will catch crayfish and smelt, cut llamas, realizing - there is no return.
              Remember how friends with Putin, and Madura was more like a brother.
              To breed anteaters, feed alpacas, and they will be sad, they will remember how it happened
              Chichu decanted, pour a glass and years, as if nothing had happened ...

                Not a fact.

                Bolivian police receive arrest warrant for Evo Morales

                  I must admit that the talent, of course, is extremely weak, something like: I am a poet, I am called Dunno, from me you balalaika. And somehow it turned out strange - to jump from one poetic size to another? And all this was meant, of course, in the absence of criminal offenses in his actions. But it is impossible to call him, like anyone else, a priori, without a court decision, as a criminal. Although the police might know better? We will see what happens next.

                    That's right.
                    An arrest warrant is issued for a reason, there must be information confirming the allegations. In addition, it was written out not only to him. Have you had a thorough investigation in a day? Too playfully, don’t you? Against the background of events (see video above), I tend to evaluate these actions as the beginning of repressions.
