Polls close in Bolivia’s high-stakes presidential election

Vote counting is underway in Bolivia, in a presidential election many hope will restore stability.
The leading contenders are a former minister of economy and former President Carlos Mesa.
Bolivia was plunged into political crisis last October when then-president Evo Morales sought a fourth term.
It sparked protests that forced him out of office.

    Well, all the polls seem to indicate that Luis Acre and the Movement for Socialism (MAS) will rather decisively place first, at least in the first round.
    But if they don't gain an outright majority and a second round commences, if supporters of opposition leaders Luis Fernando Camacho (of the Creemos alliance- generally the more definitively right-wing conservatives) and Carlos Mesa (of the Revolutionary Left Front and Civic Community alliance, generally the center-left, social democrats, centrists, liberal faction) pool their votes together behind a common candidate (most likely Mesa, judging from the polls), they could really be neck-to-neck with Acre and MAS.

    Congratulations to the people of Bolivia! They took back their country from a US-instigated right-wing coup, because President Evo Morales (the real legitimate President) had worked for Bolivian interests, ensured the wealth of Bolivia went to its people, and under Morales' leadership, poverty has plummeted (especially among native Americans) while Bolivia's economy grew 5-6% every year. Hooray to Bolivia's people! And death to American imperialism.

    There was not that much fraud go cause a coup. Ask Elon Musk what happened, ask the minority whom funded them. Such rubbish. For factual content on this matter follow the Grayzone and see award winning investigative journalist Matt and his crew digest it for you
