Several hours after the polls closed on Sunday in Bolivia, the preliminary results became known: Luis Arce, the candidate of the Movement for Socialism (MAS), won the first round with 52.4 percent. The right-wing candidate Carlos Mesa got 31.5 percent, and the far-right candidate Luis Fernando Camacho, 14.1 percent. The MAS is set to return to power, after the government of Evo Morales was toppled last year in a coup. The de facto president, Jeanine Áñez, acknowledged the MAS victory. Official results are expected Tuesday. This is an initial assessment by Bolivian socialists.
