Morales fled Bolivia in November and is currently in Argentina, where the government of President Alberto Fernandez has granted him asylum. At a news conference in Buenos Aires this week, Morales called for new elections and reiterated that he won't run as a candidate.
The Fernandez government says Morales was ousted illegally in a coup, which is also the position of the governments of Mexico, Venezuela and Cuba.
U.S. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, applauded Morales's ouster and praised the Bolivian military for defending the country's constitution.

Morales quit following weeks of protests by opposition supporters, over accusations that he committed fraud in the Oct. 20 election -- claims that were strengthened by a report by the Organization of American States which found irregularities in the election.
The Anez government said it will organize new elections, but hasn't yet set a date. Many Bolivians regard the government as illegitimate, since it wasn't elected.
S&P Global Ratings this month lowered the country's outlook to negative, saying that “uncertainty caused by national elections and the change in political leadership has weakened Bolivia's macroeconomic pillars.”
Moody's Investors Service also cited heightened political risk when it put Bolivia on downgrade review this month.
