Bolivian Government Party Leads in Six Departments

LA PAZ.- The party of President Evo Morales, the Movement to Socialism (MAS), is the electoral preference for the municipal elections next April 4, in which they could win six of the nine departments that are being disputed in that country.

The poll indicates that the left party enjoys support in the departments in the east: La Paz, Oruro and Potosí; in the center: Cochabamba and Chuquisaca, and in the northern and former opposition bastion: Pando.

While the opposition continues dominating the preference in the regions of Beni and Santa Cruz, reports Telesur.

The calculation was carried out by a local pollster that consulted 2,940 people in the nine departments, between February 20 and March 2 the 2010.

Bolivia will choose, on April 4, not just its nine governors, the electorate will also choose 144 departmental assemblymen, 337 mayors, 1,887 councillors, 23 local indigenous authorities, besides provincial deputy governors and officials.
