Bolivian President Evo Morales ‘Loses’ Fourth Term Bid’
President Evo Morales of Bolivia has narrowly lost a referendum to allow him to stand for a fourth term in office, exit polls suggest.
One poll suggests 52.3% voted against the proposal to amend the constitution, while another suggests it was 51%.
The change would have let Mr Morales, who says he needs more time for reforms, remain in power until 2025.
Opposition supporters have been celebrating the referendum result in parts of the main city, La Paz
Mr Morales, an indigenous Aymara and former coca leaf producer, took office in January 2006.
