2019's year of protests
A world map showing the main types of protests in 2019.
Lawmakers had been summoned to formalize Sunday's resignation and confirm Jeanine Anez, 52, as interim president.
Mexico said Monday it has granted asylum to Bolivia's Evo Morales, after the leftist president's resignation left the South American nation reeling amid a power vacuum.
It said that Morales' government had been ready to seek "constructive solutions on the basis of dialogue."
Deadly unrest has gripped the South American country since Evo Morales was named winner of the October 20 election for a fourth term.
Bolivia has been convulsed by protests since 20 October when its Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) abruptly suspended the publication of results from an electronic count that eventually gave Morales a fourth term, leading to accusations of fraud.
Residents of the Achumani neighbourhood in southern La Paz used tree limbs and rope to close roads and block access to public transport, with some bus drivers trying to remove the barricades.
From early morning, demonstrators draped in Bolivia's red, yellow and green flag blocked roads in La Paz with barricades of tires, rope and trash cans as they demanded their 'vote be respected.'
The past weeks have seen a wave of often unprecedented protest movements erupt in countries around the world.
