TEHRAN(Basirat): Bolivian Ambassador to Tehran Romina Guadalupe Perez Ramos said that the opposition forces in her country have resorted to coup and fascist methods to annihilate democracy, warning that President Evo Morales' life is at risk by coup plotters.
Envoy: Coup Plotters Using Fascist Methods to Kill Democracy in Bolivia

"The coup launchers and their supporters use fascist methods to destroy democracy in Bolivia," Ramos told reporters in a press conference in Tehran on Monday.

Asked about the US role in provoking protest rallies against the Morales government, she said that the Americans have large interests in Bolivia and the US envoy had in 2008 attempted to launch a civil and military coup in the country but failed and was expelled.

"The Coup in Bolivia has not come to an end and President Morales is in danger and one of the main goals pursued by the coup launchers is ending the president's life," Ramos said.

She called on all nations to join the international call to support Morales and protect his life.

On November 10, Morales announced his resignation, branding the recent developments as a coup d’etat. He stepped down following the demands of the country’s armed forces and opposition.

Bolivia's presidential election was held on October 20. The country's Supreme Electoral Court declared that Morales won the first round. His main rival, former President Carlos Mesa, refused to recognize Morales' victory. After the results of the election were announced, protests and strikes erupted across the South American country. Morales declared a state of emergency and accused the opposition of attempting to stage a coup.

The authorities of Cuba, Venezuela and Mexico as well as Argentina’s newly-elected President Alberto Fernandez have also slammed recent developments as a coup.
