“La Paz, Bolivia (CNN) — Incumbent Evo Morales declared victory in Bolivia’s presidential vote Sunday. Official results have not been announced, but a national exit poll placed Morales in the lead with 61% of the votes. Victory would mean Morales, of the Movement for Socialism party, would lead the country until 2020 in his third consecutive term as President.”

BBC “Bolivia election: Leaders congratulate Morales on ‘win’. Left-wing Latin American leaders have congratulated Bolivian President Evo Morales, who has claimed victory and a third term in office after presidential elections held on Sunday. The presidents of Argentina, Nicaragua, Uruguay and Venezuela expressed their good wishes to Mr Morales. Exit polls show him on 60%, well ahead of his closest rival’s 25% of the vote.”

Common Dreams: In ‘Victory for Anti-Imperialists,’ Evo Morales Wins Third Term. ‘Nationalization won with more than 60 percent,’ the Socialist leader told the thousands who gathered outside the presidential palace”

Fox News: “Bolivia’s Morales expected to ride economic stability to easy third-term victory”

Bloomberg: “Bolivia’s Morales Claims Victory as He Proves No Chavez. Evo Morales declared victory in Bolivia’s presidential vote yesterday after proving more pragmatic than his former ally, Venezuela’s late President Hugo Chavez, and overseeing eight years of economic growth and budget surpluses in Latin America’s poorest nation.”
