Bolivia to Hold Presidential Election on Oct. 12

LA PAZ – Bolivia will hold its next presidential election on Oct. 12, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal announced Wednesday.

Incumbent Evo Morales, the first indigenous president of the majority-Indian nation, is seeking a third consecutive term.

The tribunal designated Dec. 7 as the date for a runoff, if no candidate secures a majority in the initial balloting.

Voters will elect the president, vice president, senators and members of the lower house in the balloting.

In addition, for the first time the public will select Bolivia’s representatives in regional bodies such as the Andean Parliament.

The vote is sure to be marked by controversy, as some say Morales’ bid for a third term is unconstitutional.

Bolivia’s 2009 constitution limits the head of state to two consecutive terms.

Morales came to power in January 2006.

However, a ruling by the Constitutional Court allowed Morales’ new candidacy, arguing that his first mandate does not count because it took place before the adoption of the new national charter.
