The stakes in the Bolivian elections

Bolivians vote in a general election on October 20th.  Evo Morales has been the President since 2006, winning three successive terms as President. A victory for him would continue the development of the economy and the rise in living standards since he took office.  It would be a considerable boost to the left across Latin America, which otherwise faces the impositions of Bolsonaro, Macri and Moreno, backed by the US and in some cases the IMF.  Socialists internationally have every reason to support a Morales victory.
