Bolivian President Evo Morales has acknowledged defeat in a referendum that would have allowed him a fourth term. Morales’ current term ends in 2020; the referendum would have allowed him to remain in power until 2025. On Wednesday, resident Óscar Solís celebrated the results of the referendum.
Óscar Solís: “We’re very happy for this day of victory. We thank the Bolivian people, because we have said no to corruption, no to the traffic of influences, no to the lies. The people don’t want our State Political Constitution to change. The people want new leaders.”
