MADRID, Nov. 10 (EUROPE PRESS) –

The Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bolivia, Carmen Almendras, has resigned in the midst of the open political crisis following the controversial elections of October 20.

Almendras has submitted his resignation in a letter addressed to Foreign Minister Diego Pary, according to the Bolivian newspaper 'El Debe' ​​in its digital edition.

This Sunday, the Bolivian president, Evo Morales, has announced the cancellation of the controversial elections of October 20 after the publication of a report by OAS observers that confirms the existence of numerous irregularities, as the opposition denounced.

However, the opposition demands the resignation of Evo Morales and that it cannot be submitted to the new elections. An undetermined number of police officers have mutinied with labor demands and seconded the demand for Morales to resign and has asked the Army to join the protest.
