Bolivian Senator declares interim presidency

More than two days after Bolivia’s president resigned under pressure, the senator who is next in the line of succession stood before the national assembly on Tuesday and said she was seizing control of the country, which had been left rudderless.

“I assume the presidency immediately and will do everything necessary to pacify the country,” said the senator, Jeanine Añez Chavez.

Ms. Añez’s announcement was the latest dramatic turn after President Evo Morales stepped down on Sunday and accepted an asylum offer in Mexico. He arrived there Tuesday morning and defiantly vowed to return, denouncing his ouster as a coup.
