Evo Morales, between renovating adversaries and right-wing enemies
Since 2019, political adversaries have emerged for Evo Morales, from the MAS bases, and the main cause is his interest in running again for the presidency in 2025.
Bolivia and its factional politics
En Bolivia la política no se presenta de la manera clásica como un enfrentamiento entre oficialismo y oposición, sino como una disputa entre facciones al interior del propio partido de gobierno, el MAS.
MAS-IPSP, A Structure In Resistance
One key factor for MAS’s victory was its internal reconfiguration, following Evo Morales’ resignation and departure of the party’s former leadership, and the building of alliances based on deepening the ethnic and regional divide.
The return of MAS (and Evo Morales)
The short summer of the anti-MAS bloc in Bolivia lasted almost a year, as the newly elected president, Luis Arce Catacora (MAS), will have to be sworn in the next months. The possible return of Evo Morales generates joy to some and discomfort to others, but the triumph of his candidate shows a developed political sense.
