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

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

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.
