Bolivia: Parliament Approves New Term For Morales


Bolivia’s parliament approved a Constitutional reform that will allow President Evo Morales, in office since 2005, to run for a new term in office.

The vote of the legislators, mostly members of the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) headed by the Head of State, paves the way for a referendum that could be held next year.

Morales in the past days stressed that he doesn’t want to “rule forever”. He however also reiterated his aim to introduce by 2025 the ‘Patriotic Agenda’: a 13-point intervention plan that principally foresees the defeat of extreme poverty and the right to health and education for all.
