Very grateful for the solidarity of people, brothers from Bolivia and the world, who communicate with recommendations, suggestions and expressions of recognition that give us encouragement, strength and energy. They moved me to make me cry. They never left me; I Will Never Leave Them

Following the general election in Bolivia last Sunday, October 20, the opposition of this nation ran a campaign to slander and discredit the process
and Camacho condemned the alleged fraud, but did not provide any evidence. In view of the violence promoted under this pretext, Morales called for an audit of a vote led by the Organization of United States of America (OAS), which, without completing its work, issued a preliminary report recommending new elections to pacify the nation.
Against this background, Morales called for a new democratic day, but political opposition again refused and continued violent action, squeezing the resignation of several government officials.
Later, the Armed Forces, the police and the Ombudsman's office "suggested" the president resign.
"I have decided to give up my position so that Carlos Mesa and Luis Camacho stop abusing and harming thousands of brothers … I have an obligation to seek peace and it hurts a lot to face the Bolivians for this reason I am sending my letter of resignation to the Plenipotentiary Assembly of Bolivia, "said former President Morales, accompanied by his Vice President, Alvaro Garcia Liner, who also left the post.
