The right-wing senator who proclaimed herself interim president of Bolivia after the armed forces pressured elected head of state Evo Morales into resigning sent a bill to congress on Wednesday calling for elections in 2020.

Morales' leftist MAS party holds a majority in the legislature.

Jeanine Añez told a press conference that the aim of her proposed legislation is to ensure a "transparent" electoral process leading to a result which is "respected."
