Elections in Bolivia

Morales managed to get a majority of seats for his party for the assembly but felt short of his goal attaining 132 out of 255 seats: about 53%, a far cry from his expected 66%.

In addition four of Bolivia's nine states, including Santa Cruz, voted for greater political and economical autonomy; Santa Cruz's vote was 78% in favor of autonomy.
