Bolivia’s interim president signs off on new elections

The move which prevents Morales from contesting the presidency in the new ballot, comes as a key step towards ending weeks of unrest. 

Protests erupted after a disputed election on October 20, causing severe fuel and food shortages in La Paz and other cities. 

The new elections are seen as key to ending Bolivia’s worst political upheaval in 16 years, which has deepened divisions between indigenous people loyal to Morales and Bolivia’s mainly city-dwelling middle and upper classes.
