Law to allow elections without Morales
Bolivia’s Congress approved a bill on Saturday that opens the door to new elections without former president Evo Morales, as the caretaker government met protesters to end weeks of unrest. At least 32 people have been killed in violence that erupted after a disputed election on October 20. Both houses voted in favour of the proposal that will be sent to interim President Jeanine Anez, who is expected to sign the bill into law. Among other things, the bill annuls the results of the October 20 vote and allows for new elections. It bars candidates who served in the two previous terms from seeking re-election for the same position. That would prevent Mr Morales from contesting the presidency in the new ballot.
