well mexico's foreign minister says his country would offer morale there's asylum if the former leader sorters a number of leaders in the region have been responding to this news on twitter brazil's president jaya balsa nara said denunciations of election fraud resulted in the resignation of president was the lesson for us is the need in the name of democracy and transparency to count votes that can be ordered to the voters he's a sign of clarity for brazil while venezuela's president nicolas maduro tweeted we categorically condemn the consummate coup d'etat against the brother president if a morale is the social and political movements of the world to clear our souls in mobilization to demand the preservation of life of the bolivian 100 peoples victims of racism in america editor of asean human joins us by skype from santiago and lucy
3:04 am
a let's talk about some of this reaction it is being cast as a crew of course morale is very much playing the role of victim in the country saying this is an attack on indigenous people an attack on poor people in bolivia. yes that he is certainly doing that and he made no mention of the fact that the organization of american states had issued a preliminary results of its audit of those elections that took place exactly 3 weeks ago which showed clearly that there had been a manipulation or him put it another way fraud however that the the ex-president now blamed his rival economists amish that and also another major leaguer of the opposition not at the head of the armed forces for forcing him out which is very interesting but we are here in the east and charges of blue collar not only for what alison his supporters not only from the venezuelan intubate leaders as you would expect but also from other countries and other leaders for example the former
3:05 am
foreign minister of chile another one yes was no friend of him who would advise and he says that as much of himself is calling this also a pool of talent and integrate with the to institutional democratic order that had been one of the islam would absolutely kill elections as had been demanded by his opponents and i don't deny his american slaves it's another that they were all together to be forced to resign apparently pushed out by the army sat and there are a lot of questions out there the say there's questions about the ongoing role of the army now there are questions about the political future the political vacuum that exists in the country and just how much support there remains for morale his and his party. well he does have support is no doubt about that whether he actually won the elections in the 1st round as he had playing loose is one thing but he does and his supporters and his political party continues to have the majority in the clone wrist he has a lot of support on the streets of some areas of the country and it's not clear
3:06 am
that his supporters will heed this call to just basically back off to prevent bloodshed the other thing is of course it was the it just fill that void the the head of the vice president presides the president of the senate in the lower house to to the next in line and also resign now we have the president of the supreme court possibly filling that role but that hasn't been tired yet so it's going to be a very unstable situation in the coming hours and days into the sea thank you so much for that parent who is a journalist focusing on latin america at the grammys and that's an independent news website she believes morales was press it out as president undemocratically. the i think there's no question that what we've just witnessed in bolivia is a military coup what else do you call it when a president is forced to resign after the head of the armed forces someone noble livy and actually voted for called on the president to step down and we should keep
3:07 am
in mind able morales is a mandate regardless of what you think about the october 20th result does last until this january so even if we were to invalidate the last of the this last election a vote still is the president or should have been the president until january and instead we've seen him step down saying that he's stepping down because members of his party. will have actually fallen under threat there holmes of mares and governors were were were attacked by violent demonstrators who threaten to carry them out of their houses and set them on fire we saw public journalists journalist working for a bolivia television dragged out of their offices by these very clearly right wing violent non-democratic protesters and demanding they stop their broadcast of the demonstrations this to me appears to be completely undemocratic and a clear attack against able moralise and his mandate he was willing to go for
