Evo Morales’s MAS Party Set for Outright Victory in Bolivia, One Year After His Ouster

HeadlineOct 19, 2020

In Bolivia, former President Evo Morales’s political party MAS is claiming victory in Sunday’s presidential election. Exit polls show Luis Arce has won over 50% of the vote, giving him an outright win. If confirmed, it will put the socialist party back in power, putting an end to the far-right government which ousted Evo Morales in November 2019 and is currently led by Jeanine Áñez. Protests have rocked Bolivia for months now, calling out the government’s use of military and police repression and violence against Indigenous communities.
