SCRIPT
Bolivian opposition senator Jeanine Anez took temporary control of the Bolivian Senate where she announced herself as the interim president of Bolivia in La Paz on Tuesday.
"In the absence of the president and vice president… I immediately assume the presidency of the State," announced Anez to the cheers of opposition MPs.
The parliamentary session was boycotted by the parliamentary members supporting former Bolivian President Evo Morales.
On Sunday, Morales announced his resignation, following weeks of unrest in the wake of the disputed October 20 presidential election. Morales said he had received threats from opposition leaders and was eventually forced by the country's military to step down.
