The bill passed in an 84 to 33 vote, following a decision by the country’s Constitutional Court — whose judges were appointed by Morales — saying the re-re-election bill does not violate Bolivia’s Constitution.

    Carefull what you wish for. She has managed the countries finances soooo well so far. Not long before she bleeds the country dry. One more year and it will be a bankrupt state.

    Ahhh...Argentina has two queens and a Pope, Venezuela has (as Spain had Francisco Franco) a “leader by the will of a little birdie”....and now this..LATAM has another “long lasting” kng. Morales didn't know that the age of the Inkas had come to an end.

    Maduro, CFK, Morales...remember..remember...remember Gadaffi !!!

    “a decision by the country’s Constitutional Court — whose judges were appointed by Morales”

    Anyone surprised? How does it go? “Of course the game is honest. I stacked the deck myself.”

    Oh, it's kind of nice being bordered with a nation controlled by an insane idiot. It keeps the military well funded...

    It is tragic-comical that Bolivians blame their woes on not having sea rather than on their own absurdity.

    “following a decision by the country’s Constitutional Court — whose judges were appointed by Morales”

    ... now where could the problem lie there?

    What planet do these LATAM countries belong to? You could not make this s“”t up. What plonkers. How can you take Bolivia serious when the President has his photo takien in that hat. Can anyone see any european country being represented by a dork wearing a balaclava, or similar attire. For F**ks sake have some decency.

    Oh come on!

    The hat is a part of the national costume and will seem perfectly acceptable to the Bolivian indians he mainly represents.

    I know and you know he looks a right prat, but they LIKE it!

    The same could be said about MADURO , a straw hat and a bird in it ( CHAVEZ ) talking to him. Christ no wonder no-one takes LATAM serious, it beggars belief.

    He looks like Bobo the clown with his ski cap. I think he's snorting too much coke.
