U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' office announced that a special envoy would be sent to Bolivia to support a "peaceful resolution" to its current crisis after military leaders called on the Bolivian president to resign over election irregularities. Former U.N. special envoy to Colombia Jean Arnault will act as the U.N. envoy to Bolivia to engage with "all Bolivian actors," and attempt to support peaceful elections in the country.
Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for Guterres, announced that "the secretary-general remains deeply concerned about developments in Bolivia. He reiterates his appeal to all Bolivians to refrain from violence and exercise utmost restraint."
Former President Evo Morales served as president of the South American nation for 14 years. He was the country's first indigenous president in modern history and leader of the ruling Movement Toward Socialism Party (MAS).
After Morales' government failed to remove constitutional restrictions on serving a fourth term, MAS appealed to Bolivia's courts to allow the president to run again.
