The Brazilian government recognized Senator Jeanine Áñez as new president of Bolivia. The Ministry of Foreign Relations sent its greetings on Twitter.
"The Brazilian government congratulates Senator Jeanine Áñez on constitutionally assuming the presidency of Bolivia and greets her determination in working for the pacification of the country and prompt general elections. Brazil wishes to deepend its fraternal friendship with Bolivia," the tweet reads.
The senator of the opposition Unidad Democráta party declared herself president of Bolivia on Tuesday (12). "I take the presidency immediately," Áñez said, even though MAS—the party led by former President Evo Morales—was not represented in Congress at the time. Morales arrived Mexico yesterday, where he was granted political asylum after resigning his post as president.
