English/Español: Rubio Comments on Resignation of Evo Morales

Nov 10, 2019 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after Evo Morales resigned as president of Bolivia following massive protests resulting from serious irregularities in the nation’s electoral process earlier this month. 
 
“The resignation of Evo Morales is a testament to the strength and the will of the Bolivian people. As I stated earlier this month, Morales was illegitimately holding on to power in Bolivia after the recent presidential elections. For the sake of Bolivia’s democratic future and stability, it’s important that free and democratic elections are held and the results are respected. I applaud the OAS’s role in overseeing and monitoring Bolivia’s recent election, I look forward to their continued work in support of the democratic process.”
 
Rubio is the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues.
