Bolivia Ex-Leader Lauds Mexico President For Solidarity

Quitting his office under military pressure after Bolivia elections, Morales offered political asylum in Mexico.

Bolivia's former leader Evo Morales welcomed Monday the remarks of Mexican president in solidarity with the ousted leader.
"We thank Brother President [Andres Manuel] Lopez Obrador and the Mexican people for their infinite solidarity with Bolivia and regional democracy," Morales said on Twitter.
"Mexico and its diplomatic tradition is an example of humanity and brotherhood for us," he added.
On Sunday, Mexican leader Obrador praised Morales during a speech marking his first year in the office.
"Evo is not only our brother but also worthily represents the people of Bolivia and especially the indigenous people, which means a double commitment.
"Democracy yes, militarism no," he said and added that Morales was "victim of a coup d'etat".
Turmoil in Bolivia began in October, when Morales won a fourth term in office and faced immediate resistance from opposition parties that challenged election results. Protesters took to the streets claiming the ballot was rigged.
After weeks of upheaval, Morales resigned under pressure from the military and moved to Mexico, where he was offered political asylum.
Conservative Senator Jeanine Anez then proclaimed herself interim president.
But public demonstrations have yet to subside, with mostly rural and indigenous pro-Morales supporters taking to the streets, including in La Paz, as well as Sacaba and Cochabamba, since he left the country saying his ouster was a coup.
While new presidential election was set for March 2020, the Anez government threatens Morales with a prison sentence if he is to return to the country. -
