HeadlineNov 25, 2019

Bolivia’s self-appointed leader Jeanine Áñez has signed legislation paving the way for a new round of presidential elections that would bar President Evo Morales from running, after Morales was ousted in what he describes as a military coup. Áñez’s new interior minister has threatened Morales with life imprisonment if he returns to Bolivia. Morales is currently in exile in Mexico. Since Morales’s ouster, the Bolivian military has carried out at least two massacres of his supporters.
