Evo Morales set to serve third term as Bolivian president

  • Evo Morales is set to serve as president of Bolivia for a third term after a quick count and exit poll both indicated a big victory for the populist leader, according to media reports.

    Claiming victory, he said this was a win for “anti-imperialists and anti-colonialists.”

    Morales has pledged to step up socialist reforms that have led to a natural gas-led booming economy.

    An exit poll gave him more than 60% of the vote, far ahead of his main rival Samuel Medina, who had just 24%.
