Uncertain outcome in Bolivia's constitution vote

Latest update : 2009-01-26

A quick count of votes after Bolivian polls closed on Sunday led to inconclusive results. Two polls claimed that the "yes" vote had a clear lead in the constitutional referendum set to give President Evo Morales the right to run for re-election.

REUTERS - A Bolivian referendum vote on a new constitution that would allow leftist President Evo Morales to run for re-election was too close to call, according to a quick count, although two exit polls gave the "yes" vote a clear lead.
 

Two television stations said their exit polls showed the constitution was approved with around 60 percent of the vote on Sunday, while the pollster who conducted the quick count for ATB television said it showed a much closer vote.
 

Morales is Bolivia's first indigenous Indian president and has said the new constitution will improve the lives of the impoverished indigenous majority and allow the state to tighten its control over the economy.
