Añez is an interim president from a minority party who has appointed a partisan cabinet.

The MAS-IPSP majority had its first session last night, giving an institutional face to Evo Morales' plurality of voters.

Bolivia remains on edge.
Continuing risks:
Exclusion of the MAS-IPSP from the political arena.
Deadly policing by the Armed Forces.
Partisan violence in a conflict that cannot be solved by force.
Another danger is that Añez will attempt to reshape Bolivia politically, economically, or culturally when she has zero mandate to do so.
