Bolivian Senator Declares Self New Leader, After President Resigns

Bolivian opposition Senator Jeanine Áñez has declared herself interim president of the south American Country following president evo morales’ resignation.

Lawmakers from Mr Morales’ party boycotted the session, meaning there was no quorum for the appointment.

But the former Deputy Senate Leader said she was next in line under the constitution and vowed to hold elections soon.

Mr Morales condemned the announcement, describing Ms Áñez as “a coup-mongering right-wing senator”.

The former President has fled to Mexico, saying he asked for asylum there because his life was in danger.

Bolivia’s highest constitutional court backed her assumption of power.
