Evo Morales resigns as president of Bolivia
Bolivian President Evo Morales resigned after three weeks of intense protests over electoral fraud.
The announcement came after he lost the support of the armed forces and the national police, who refused to crack down on the protests and asked him to step aside.
Now Sen. Jeanine Añez assuming the interim presidency, said she would accept the post so that there would be no more "vandalism, deaths,” and raping of women.
Morales, after 14 years in power, leaves the country submerged in social chaos, after the Organization of American States verified a series of irregularities in the count of votes.
Constitutional Reform in Chile
The Chilean government confirmed that it will begin the process for a new constitution.
This was announced by Interior Minister Gonzalo Blumel.
He pointed out that they will work through a Constituent Congress, which will have "a broad participation of citizens."
Then there will be a plebiscite to ratify it.
The main demands culled from the massive protests centered on the supposed economic inequality that exists in Chile.
However, the data positions the country as one of the most prosperous in the region, reducing poverty from 40% in 2003 to just 10.7% in 2017.
The situation in Bolivia as seen from other countries
Deputies of the Venezuelan National Assembly, with an opposition majority, said that Bolivians have delivered "a great teaching" to the region.
Interim Venezuelan President Juan Guaidó described what happened in Bolivia as a "democratic hurricane in Latin America."
Legislator Omar Gonzalez said that "the smallest of the nations freed by Simon Bolivar is giving us this magnificent lesson."
As for the controversial statements by Evo Morales, who called it a coup, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said, "The word coup is used a lot when the left loses. When they win, it is legitimate, but when they lose, it is a coup. I'm not going to join that narrative."
Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie said, "Bolivia is at an impasse, there are no elements to define this as a coup."
Mexico offered political asylum to Evo Morales and part of his delegation.
Maduro sends 1.2 tons of gold to Turkey
Maduro sent illegal gold to Turkey via commercial airlines.
Last Sunday, the deputy of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Carlos Paparoni, denounced it in a press conference.
The dictatorship delivered 1.2 tons of Venezuelan gold from Venezuela to Istanbul, through the airlines Solar Cargo and Turkish Airlines.
He also denounced Nicolás Maduro's son, Nicolás Maduro Guerra, and Santiago Morón because they were in charge of selling the gold, which they exchange for euros that ended up in the hands of Communist terrorist groups such as the ELN and the FARC.
