It looks that not only Mr Piñeyra is in trouble, but the camarada EVO MORALES went too far too.
First, he should not have been a candidate in the first place, it was prohibited during the last referendum. Her is an usurper, period.
He disregarded the peoples's will and was elected again, also with suspicion of fraud.
This time it was too much, and people rebelled, and it seems that there will be new elections (a way to admit his fraud).
Bolivia is factured between the ALTIPLANO, populated by indians of the aymara race, and the LOWLANDS inthe AMAZONIAN, mostly populated
by spanish mestizos. There is a risk of a secesion ala USA in 1861.

Evo pushed it too far , 2 terms in power, plus amended the Constitution be a Presidential candidate once again.

Police and military are not “the people”, they are a Coup.
The Bolivian Constitution explicitly forbid him from running again.
He tried to bypass it by having a referendum.
The dude LITERALLY ignored the results of the popular referendum that banned him from running a 3rd time.
Conducted an election full of irregularities and "won" outright on a highly polarized country.
Was abandoned by pretty much all political allies and even the top military brass that was hand picked by him.
Millions went to the streets to protest.
But of course, it was a coup.

He could have entered history as one of the greatest leaders of Latin America if he had followed the laws, steeped aside and allowed for the democratic process to continue unobstructed. Instead, he tried to be just like the oligarch caudillos that he criticized so much and he will likely go down in history as just another one.

Plus he lost the referendum , and forged the election results to win . He should be in jail.
