Morales Cannot Get to Senate – level 2
Evo Morales was the president of Bolivia, and he wants to get to Bolivia´s senate. However, authorities said that he cannot be in the election because he is not Bolivia´s resident.
In November last year, Morales ran away to Argentina, which gave him asylum. One month before, he won the elections, and he became the president of Bolivia. He was the president three times before. Some politicians said that Morales influenced the vote. Authorities said that Morales talked to people, and he wanted them to act against the government. This was a crime, and Bolivian authorities want to arrest Morales.
Morales is angry that he cannot get to Bolivia´s senate. He said that it is against democracy.
Difficult words: resident (a person who lives somewhere), asylum (when a country protects someone who runs away from their country because he or she did not feel safe there), influence (to try to change the result of something).
