Jeanine Áñez Chávez (born Trinidad, 13 August, 1967) was the interim President of Bolivia since the resignation of the socialist Evo Morales. She is strongly conservative and right-wing.[1] During her first day in office she took a Bible to the presidential office in a sign of God returning to the government after the previous one only venerated Indigenous gods.[2][3][4]

She openly denounces Socialists and said that they always want to perpetuate in power.[5]

She also implemented a flag in representation of the Eastern part of Bolivia, and changed the official newspaper (used in Evo's government as propaganda) name from Cambio to Bolivia.

Áñez gave more power to the military to control the situation in the country.[6][7][8] She also shifted Bolivia's domestic and foreign policies in a strongly conservative direction.[9] She also deported several Venezuelan and Cuban citizens in Bolivia.[10]

After her administration ended on November 2020, Luis Arce from the MAS party (the Evo Morales party) took power after wining the election. On March 2021 Áñez was taken prisoner with the charge of 'sedition' as well as other former government officials from her Administration are being persecuted.

She was sentenced to 10 years in prison, her family accuses political persecution. The President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro offered her asylum.
