This comes after Bolivía's head of Senate Jeanine Anez proclaimed herself as the country's interim president on Tuesday in an effort to fill the power vacuum.

The power grab happened just after Morales, who transformed the Andean nation as its first indigenous president, left the country for Mexico with the aim of helping Bolivia recover from weeks of violent protests.

Meanwhile, clashes between indigenous supporters of Morales and security forces continued in La Paz on Wednesday.

Police fired teargas trying to disperse the crowds, who reciprocated by throwing rocks, bricks, and other projectiles. Dressed in colorful traditional attire, protesters had earlier flooded La Paz streets.
