Bolivia’s New President – level 2
The Bolivian President Evo Morales resigned from his job and took political asylum in Mexico. This happened after weeks of protests and military pressure.
A Bolivian Senator, Jeanine Áñez, called herself the new president. However, she did not get enough votes because supporters of Morales did not vote. Áñez said that she wants to hold new elections quickly. She explained that she has the right to become president if the previous president resigns.
The US President, Donald Trump, is very happy that Morales resigned. He says that this is the right way to freedom for the Bolivian people. However, there are many protests and fights, so US officials who work in Bolivia and their families must leave the country.
Difficult words: resign (to leave a job), political asylum (a situation when a person leaves a country because of its political situation, and stays in another country), supporter (a person who likes a political person or party).
