Bolivian President Evo Morales is Out, His Supporters Want Civil War

Published

on

On November 11, 2019, the former president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, who resigned due to pressure from protestors and the military, received asylum from Mexico.

To say that Bolivia is going through political chaos is an understatement.

Morales left office on Sunday and was granted refuge “for humanitarian reasons and in light of the urgent situation Bolivia is facing,” according to Mexico’s foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, during a televised statement on Monday.

Now, there is a major power vacuum in Bolivia where various politicians are vying to succeed Morales.

Supporters of Morales are now coming to the former president’s defense.

In fact, Aurora Intel highlighted how “Thousands of Morales supporters (some of which are armed) are currently marching through El Alto towards La Paz while chanting “Now yes, civil war” #Bolivia

 

Morales originally said he was deposed in a “coup”, but then softened his rhetoric on Monday afternoon and called for an end to violence in Twitter messages.

“We can’t have a confrontation between Bolivian brothers,” he stated. “I am making an urgent appeal to resolve any differences with dialogue.”

The entire political crisis started when Morales claimed an electoral victory during the October 20 elections, which protestors and international observers believe was rigged.

Following the election results, demonstrators filled the streets and put the country at a political standstill. Eventually, the general of the Bolivian armed forces Williams Kaliman called for Morales to step down.

Morales was a staunch ally of the Venezuelan regime — the standard-bearer for Latin American socialism — and positioned himself as one of Latin America’s most charismatic leaders after the death of Hugo Chávez.

Having served in office since 2006, it appears that Morales has worn out his welcome.

Bolivia will need a genuine right-wing government to move forward.
