Bolivia’s New President – level 1

20-11-2019 07:00

There is a  difficult political situation in Bolivia. People protest against the president and his ideas . The Bolivian president leaves his post. He  moves to Mexico where he is safe.

Another  Bolivian leader  calls herself the  new president. This is a problem because she does not get enough votes to be a president. Some people do not vote because they like the previous president more. There must be new voting.

The US President is happy that Bolivia has a new president. He says that it is very good news for the future of Bolivian people. However, Bolivia is not a safe place. All  US officials who work in Bolivia must leave the country.

Difficult words: protest (a situation when people show that they are not happy with a situation or a person, usually in government ), post (a job), previous (the one before the existing thing ).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
