New ministers and renewal of the military leadership in Bolivia

In her first decree, the president formed the new leadership structure of the Armed Forces, appointing Carlos Orellana Centellas as the new chief.

The new Minister of Government Arturo Murillo issued a warning to the former minister of the presidency of Evo Morales, "We are going to hunt Juan Ramón Quintana, why is it a hunt? Because he is an animal that is killing people in our country and we are not going to allow it.

Quintana is accused of being the "brains" behind the actions against the opposition to the government of Evo Morales.

Last presidential debate in Uruguay before the second round

A presidential debate was held in Uruguay on Nov. 13, between the candidates Luis Lacalle Pou and Daniel Martínez, prior to the second round on Nov. 24. 

The debate covered different areas, but focused on issues such as security and the economy. 

Martínez, of the Broad Front party, obtained a majority of votes in the first round, but Luis Lacalle Pou, the opposition candidate of the National Party, is the favorite of this second round. 

Martínez has only the support of the government, while Lacalle Pou has the support of the Colorado Party, Cabildo Abierto, and the Independent Party. 

With this coalition he could win 51% of the vote, which would allow a conservative government to return to power after 15 years of leftist mandates.
