New law allows President Evo Morales to be elected for third time
21 May, 2013
The Bolivian law which states that presidents may only serve two terms has been controversially changed to enable President Evo Morales to be elected for a third period in office.
The rule was changed in April by the highest court in Bolivia under the argument that the constitution was altered while Morales was in office the first time, and therefore, his first four years did not count.
The opposition are claiming that the law is unconstitutional and that they will make efforts to overturn it.
