Close Race

A recent poll gives former Bolivia’s President Jorge Quiroga a fragile 1.1% lead in the presidential race.

The survey by Ipsos-Captura says that if the elections are held today Jorge Quiroga from Podemos (We Can) party would obtain 29.2% of the valid votes, whereas Evo Morales from MAS [Movement Towards Socialism] would get 28.3 per cent. An earlier survey gave Morales a 6% lead.

The race is close and the process polarized between left and right. This election is important for the regional political balance.
