Bolivia: Opposition rallies against president's re-election bid

The opposition says Morales should respect the results of his own referendum.

by

    Opposition groups have held a strike across much of Bolivia.

    They're angry with President Evo Morales for seeking a fourth consecutive term in office.

    They say he’s acting unconstitutionally by ignoring a national referendum, which showed voters were against him standing again.

    But Morales is leading in opinion polls ahead of the October elections.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports.
