Bolivia panel approves the bill to amend the Constitution to extend this preside

A Bolivian legislative committee approved a bill on Tuesday to amend the constitution to extend presidential terms, allowing current President Evo Morales and his vice president to run for a fourth consecutive term in office. The president’s party, Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) won a two-thirds majority in the Legislative Assembly during the last elections, where the bill will be sent next for approval. If the bill passes the Legislative Assembly, then it will face a national referendum in February. According to the critics of the bill, it is a move by the party to undermine democracy, but its supporters say it will simply be the people deciding the issue.
