A little historical perspective on the #BoliviaCoup/#NoFueGolpeDeEstado debate…



Bolivia has had numerous coups over the last ninety years, beginning in May 1936 and ending in October 1982. From 1936 to 1985, a military ruler headed the government 57% of the time.

Bolivia has also had many changes of government prompted by disruptive protests. These include at least all of those in this table.
Typically, the 1952 Revolution, 1979 and 1982 restoration of democracy, and the 2003 and 2005 Gas Wars are not thought of as coups. Nor is the early election forced by strikes in 1985.

Why? I think: In all of these cases, the military signaled limits to further state repression, stayed out of the presidential chair, and did not substitute its choice of leaders for one determined at the ballot box.

<...>

Not a day where I think being intellectually consistent is going to make many people happy with me.

Bolivia: audios leaked from opposition leaders calling for a coup against Evo Morales
A series of 16 audios in which opposition leaders call for a coup against the newly re-elected president Evo Morales were leaked through various social platforms.

Local media point out that the destabilizing plan would have been coordinated by the United States Embassy in Bolivia prior to the elections and cites US senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, who are said to have direct contact with the Bolivian opposition in the strategy to overthrow Morales.

The plan focuses on the fact that if Evo Morales won the elections on October 20, a civil-military transition government would be established. The new government would allege fraud in the electoral process and would not recognize Morales' electoral victory.

Bolivia coup led by Christian fascist paramilitary leader and millionaire – with foreign support

Courts should not make these kinds of decisions.    The larger social contract matters.   Morales should have known better and built a senior party caucus that was more than capable of taking over from him.    His insistence on running for a 4th term signals how incomplete his legacy is.  

I don't have a firm grip on the Bolivian military involvement but to me it sounded like the military was saying that Morales should step down for the sake of public order.   So much for broad consensus, big tent politics.
The opposition politician said she would convene the legislative assembly later on Monday to be confirmed as interim president.

But with Mr Morales' party in control of both the Senate and the House of Deputies it is not clear if she will get the necessary backing from legislators.

Under Bolivia's constitution, whoever takes over as interim president has 90 days to call fresh elections.

Evo Morales managed to keep inflation low and public finances within reason.  Not sure that Bolivia can keep up growth unless it loosens state control of the economy, but that is minor compared to the strongman move he made.

Ignoring the constitution and running for a 4th term was one big step too far.
Opponents of the Morales government, and its political party, the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS), have also argued that Morales should not have been able to run for reelection. Their arguments are that the Constitution forbids it, and that in a referendum held in February 2016, a 51-to-49 majority voted not to allow the president and vice president to run for another term.

But in December 2017, the nation’s highest court ruled against term limits. Regardless of what anyone thinks of it, in Bolivia, as in the United States, the court’s decision is the law of the land. For many of those trying to overturn the results of the presidential election—including the Trump administration and its allies—the end justifies the means, and the rule of law is not a consideration.
Of course courts can be stacked. Anywhere.

Evo Morales has resigned.  Under a cloud.  After 14 years in office.
