There are no similarities between the current situation and previous coups d'état in Bolivia. In this case, there was no military presence in the streets leading to the coup. Therefore, the military did not force the population to respond to the change in power in a given manner. In fact, the military did not aim to take control of the government, and the country was left in a power vacuum until the next person in the chain of command, as laid out in the constitution, took control.
Crucially, the military was not the only force pushing Morales out and driving regime change. unlike previous coups, many organizations and civil society groups wanted Morales to step down, including major labor unions, civic groups and student organizations.
Lastly, there is simply not enough information at this point to understand the politics that took place behind the scenes, nor the exact motivations of the head of government or the army leaders at the time.
