Acting Bolivian President Jeanine Anez has addressed all the government ministers calling for their resignation to hold a cabinet reshuffle after she declared her intention to run for president, the presidential administration’s press service reported on Sunday.

"Constitutional President Jeanine Anez believes that it is common to make rearrangements in the executive authority team on the eve of registration of candidates running in a free, impartial and transparent election on May 3. In light of this, she decided to ask all ministers to resign before a new stage in the transitional democratic government," says the statement published on the website of Bolivia’s La Razon newspaper.

Anez pledged to reveal the new cabinet lineup soon.
