Former Bolivian President Evo Morales has arrived in Argentina on Thursday to remain a “refugee,” as reported by the country’s new Foreign Minister, Felipe Solá.
Solá explained that Morales has arrived in Argentina in a secret operation from Cuba, where he traveled last week from Mexico for medical reasons, as revealed by the indigenous leader.
Morales resigned on November 10 after the Organization of American States (OAS) detected “irregularities” in the presidential elections held on October 20.
At first he settled in Mexico as a political asylum seeker, although he had asked the elected president of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, to be able to stay in the southern nation, where his two children, Evaliz and Álvaro, arrived last month, according to the local press
Fernández, a ‘Kirchnerist’ candidate, took office on December 10, ending Mauricio Macri’s mandate, in the antipodal policies of Morales, which is why the former Bolivian president would have waited for the change of tenant at the Casa Rosada.
