Former President of Bolivia Evo Morales lands in Argentina after being granted asylum. Foreign Minister of Argentina Felipe Solá says Morales will receive refugee status.
Citizens in Bolivia head to the polls to elect their new president. This is the first time elections are held since the 2019 Bolivian political crisis which saw Evo Morales resigning from power and Jeanine Áñez temporarily taking power. The two main candidates are Luis Arce, representing Morales's party Movement for Socialism, and Carlos Mesa, representing the centrist Revolutionary Left Front.
Interim president Jeanine Áñez withdraws from the presidential race, saying the opposition needs to consolidate to beat frontrunner Luis Arce, who is representing deposed President Evo Morales' party Movement for Socialism.
The press office of deposed Bolivian President Evo Morales rejects a criminal complaint filed this week by the Ministry of Justice accusing him of trafficking and raping a 16-year-old girl, claiming it was part of a "dirty war" waged by the interim government.
Despite lacking a quorum in a session of the National Congress, Senator Jeanine Áñez immediately declares herself President of Bolivia due to the vacancy arising from the resignation and exile of Evo Morales.
Authorities abruptly stop updating the results, causing concern among opposition politicians and the Organization of American States, which has election observers in Bolivia. Before the results were halted, incumbent President Evo Morales held 45 percent of the vote and former President Carlos Mesa held 38 percent.
