Bolivian presidential candidates ended their electoral campaigns on Wednesday with final rallies taking place across the country. The ruling Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party concluded its campaigning with a rally in El Alto, a poor area overlooking the capital La Paz. President Evo Morales called on his supporters to turn out in force for Sunday’s presidential elections. Morales is set for a landslide win on Sunday, according to most poll results. To win outright in the first round, Morales will need over 50 percent of the vote, or win 40 percent of the vote by at least 10 percentage points.
Most polls ahead of the election suggested he would easily secure well over half the vote, with his closest rival projected to be cement tycoon Samuel Doria Medina.
Medina himself rallied his supporters in the opposition stronghold of Santa Cruz. As of midnight, no candidates will be legally allowed to campaign, in accordance with Bolivian law.
