Former Bolivian President Evo Morales returned to Bolivia through the southern border with Argentina on Tuesday after spending a one-year exile in Argentinean capital Buenos Aires, following his resignation from the presidency after a voter-fraud scandal. 

Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez walked with Morales to the border town of Villazon.

Thousands of supporters were waiting for Morales’ arrival, a day after his former economy minister and Bolivia’s new President Luis Arce held an inauguration ceremony with world leaders in La Paz.

“As long as capitalism and imperialism exist, the fight goes on. This is a revolution for South America, we need to fight for better conditions for the indigenous and the poor people of Bolivia and the whole continent,” Morales told the crowd.

“There are thousands of Bolivians waiting to embrace Evo on the other side of this bridge … and do you know why? Because the people never get it wrong. Viva Bolivia! Viva Latin America!” President Fernández said after escorting Morales to the border crossing.
