RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The governmental majority party Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS) continues to be unable to win over voters in Santa Cruz, La Paz and Cochabamba, the largest Bolivian cities. Evo Morales' party failed to elect mayors there on Sunday, March 7th, in addition to losing again in El Alto, considered one of its strongholds.
The three cities of the so-called central axis besides El Alto -the second most populous in the country- have mostly resisted the ruling party in recent years and these municipal elections were no exception, according to exit polls results released by local media . . .
