Former Bolivian President Evo Morales (AP)

Bolivia's ex-president in Mexico to seek political asylum   

LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — Former Bolivian President Evo Morales flew to exile in Mexico on Nov. 12 as his supporters and foes clashed on the streets of the capital La Paz.

Leftist Morales, who was Bolivia's first indigenous president and held power for nearly 14 years, resigned on Nov. 10 after weeks of protests against him over the contentious results of the Oct. 20 presidential election.

Morales declared himself the outright winner even before official results indicated he got just enough support to avoid a runoff with former President Carlos Mesa. But a 24-hour lapse in releasing voting results fueled allegations of fraud from the opposition.

Opposition leader Senator Jeanine Anez declared herself interim president of Bolivia following Morales' resignation. She said her priorities are to pacify Bolivia and hold new elections within three months.

However, Morales' supporters, who are demanding his return, have been staging disruptive protests that forced the closure of schools and caused shortages of gasoline and food in the capital. At least 24 people have been killed in the unrest that has broken out after the election.
