Bolivia: Morales Says Results of Re-election Referendum Still Not Final

HeadlineFeb 23, 2016

In news from Latin America, Bolivian President Evo Morales says he is still awaiting final results on a referendum allowing him a fourth term. Morales’ current term ends in 2020; the referendum would have allowed him to remain until 2025. Speaking Monday, Morales said results indicating he lost the bid are not yet final.

Bolivian President Evo Morales: “I have asked all social groups, those that took part in both the 'yes' and 'no' campaigns, to show great serenity and responsibility in waiting for the final result from the Supreme Electoral Tribunal. I have heard some people who seem to think that my time has ended. But they are mistaken. Life goes on. And if 'no' wins, the fights goes on, the project continues. I have so many responsibilities, and there is no need to despair, no matter what the result is.”
