Bolivia 'tied' over Morales fourth term

Voting is mandatory in Bolivia, and some 6.5 million Bolivians are eligible to cast ballotsThe government of Evo Morales urged patience following a referendum that would allow the Bolivian president to seek a fourth term, saying the results were tied despite media projections to the contrary. Local media projected late Sunday that Bolivians had rejected a move to change the constitution and deny Morales a bid to seek a fourth term, potentially extending his presidency until 2025. Voters had their say on a constitutional amendment that would allow Morales and Vice President Alvaro Garcia to seek another five-year term when their current one ends in 2020.
