translated from Spanish: The Government of Añez will remove the name Evo Morales from clothing, medals and sports facilities

The name of former Bolivian President Evo Morales will be removed from the clothes, medals and sports facilities that carry him, as announced on Thursday by the Minister of Sport, Milton Navarro, of the Government of the self-proclaimed president Jeanine Añez.Navarro has informed at a press conference that he is preparing a resolution to «unsubscribe» Morales’ name from everything related to his Ministry, indicating that currently some 800 sports cars and about 500 sports awards carry the name of the indigenous leader.» We cannot use them,» said Navarro, explaining that this is a detriment to Bolivians and the State, as reported by the news network Erbol.Navarro has advocated that from now on the name of the Ministry of Sports is used for this type of matters, not that of a person who may condition subsequent administrations. In addition, it considered that an investigation should be initiated for embezzlement against the previous ministerial team, led by Tito Montaño, because it would have conditioned the construction of new facilities to bear the name Morales.» Silver has not come out of his pocket, that of Evo Morales, has come out of the silver of the Bolivians themselves and, therefore, they have to change all the sports scenarios that have put the name of Evo Morales», he has defended. Morales devoted particular importance to the promotion of the sport during his tenure, especially football, of which he is a great fan. In fact, one of the first things he did when he arrived in Argentina, where he is a refugee, was to play a match with local authorities. Morales resigned on November 10 after the Organization of American States (OAS) detected «irregularities» in the presidential elections held on October 20. He first settled in Mexico as a political asylado, then traveled to Cuba for medical reasons. Last week he arrived in Argentina as a refugee, as he had asked Alberto Fernández as the country’s president-elect. Morales’ party, the MAS, and its opponents have reached an agreement in Congress to hold other presidential elections, although they have vetoed the indigenous leader as a candidate, so he will simply serve as a campaign manager.
