The Aimara leader is first in all surveys with an intention of vote of about 30 points above Manfred Reyes Villa, from the Progress Plan for Bolivia-National Convergence (PPB-CN), and businessman Samuel Doria Medina, from National Unity (UN).

Opposition parties not even achieved to form alliances to face the electoral process and pleased with presenting options that, in their constant attacks to the government, only got to dig their own grave.

There were several attempts to overthrow Morales, among them, an open campaign to discredit the Executive’s decisions and later a revocation referendum, the result of which ratified him in front of the country.
