Join us for a discussion of the events leading to the presidential elections of October 20, 2019, through which former president Evo Morales was seeking a controversial fourth term in office. In the aftermath, accusations of fraud surged following a number of irregularities on the vote reporting system, leading to increasing social protests and general strike that lasted over three weeks. Numerous calls for resignation, including in the end from the armed forces, resulted in the resignation of the president and vice president and the assumption of the presidency by Senator Jeanine Añez on November 12, 2019. Among others, our distinguished panel will address the constitutional, electoral, and national security implications.
