Bolivian Armed Forces suggest President Evo Morales resign

La Paz, November 10 (RHC)-- The Bolivian Armed Forces have "suggested" that President Evo Morales resign.  The announcement was made in a short statement read Sunday afternoon by the Commander in-Chief, General Williams Kaliman.

In related news, it has been reported that a number of senior government officials have been forced to resign following attacks on their homes by right-wing protesters.

Local media reports say that up to 17 forced resignations from the ruling party MAS have taken place so far, including four ministers.  It also includes governors, mayors, and lawmakers. 

Many of those who resigned have issued statements through their social media accounts or to the press indicating that their resignations came after death threats were made against them and their families and they held the opposition figures leading the unrest responsible if something were to happen to them or to their families.
