Police and military have been on the lookout for Evo Morales, who has just resigned as Bolivia’s president, opposition leader has claimed. Morales dubbed the arrest warrant “illegal,” and said that his house was raided.
Earlier, Bolivian protest leader Luis Fernando Camacho has said that an outstanding warrant exists for the socialist leader's arrest. “Confirmed!! Arrest warrant for Evo Morales !! The police and the military are looking for him in Chapare [rural province in the northern region of Cochabamba], a place where he hid,” Camacho wrote, adding that the military seized the presidential plane Morales used to get to his political stronghold of Chimoré in the Department of Cochabamba, 300 kilometers (186 miles) east of La Paz, from where he annonuced his resignation.
Morales’ resignation on Sunday was preceded by weeks of mass protests that swept through the South American country in the wake of the October 20 general elections, as opposition accused his government of tempering with the vote tally. Morales narrowly secured a 10 percentage point lead over his main challenger, thus avoiding a run-off.
