On 10 November, Evo Morales stepped down as president of Bolivia, following weeks of protests over disputed election results. Morales' resignation came after calls by Bolivian armed forces for him to step down, and an audit by the OAS which identified irregularities in the October 20 vote. Morales has since accepted political asylum in Mexico, and Bolivian opposition senator Jeanine Áñez has declared herself interim president.
Sarah Sheldon, Editor at LatinNews, gives an overview of this fast-developing situation, focusing in particular on the internal politics that triggered these developments, and looking ahead to what’s next for Bolivia. The discussion is chaired by Ian Perrin, Head of Policy, Research & Operations.
