|Coup plotters: Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela and Evo Morales in Bolivia|
Evo Morales attempted to follow the path trod by Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela and Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua. Both succeeded in undermining the rule of law, judicial independence, and compromised the electoral system in a slow motion coup against their respective democratic systems. Maduro and Ortega succeeded, and Morales appears to have failed in Bolivia.
There had been long term slow coup carried out by Evo Morales that sought to perpetuate his regime for another term power. Morales had already been in office for 13 years and nine months in power, and would have completed 14 years in office at the end of the current term.
Evo Morales and his regime undermined the rule of law in Bolivia, compromised the independence and integrity of the judiciary and the electoral system that violated democratic norms. Furthermore Morales tried to build a highway through a national park occupied by indigenous communities that met popular resistance in 2011 and again in 2017. Morales also ignored a 2016 referendum against scrapping presidential term limits, and the October 20th fraudulent election combined with repression of protesters was the last straw for many Bolivians.A coup d'état in #Bolivia?— OAS (@OAS_official) November 12, 2019

The Castro regime, its vassal state in Venezuela, and the rest of the Sao Paulo Forum are mobilizing to back Evo Morales, denouncing his departure, and still seek to carry out Morales's coup against Bolivia's democratic order.
