1825: Bolivia became independent from Spain 1975: Elections replaced military rule Bolivia held their presidential elections over the weekend, resulting in a win for Luis Arce, the candidate for Evo Morales’s Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS). This MAS victory overturned the right-wing U.S./OAS golpe de estado (coup d’etat) that ousted Morales in November 2019 and installed Jeanine Áñez as president. Securing more than 50% of the vote, this twice-postponed election is a victory for the Bolivian Socialist movement. Arce, who was the former finance minister under Morales, said “We have reclaimed democracy and above all we have reclaimed hope.” Sources: “A Blow Against Neoliberalism”: Socialist Wins Bolivian Election a Year After Coup Ousted Evo Morales Bolivia election: Evo Morales's leftwing party celebrates stunning comeback
