Evo’s now president-for-life:
The court lifted constitutional limits on re-election arguing that they violated candidates’ human rights.
The BBC lists,
Changes to presidents’ term limits:
- 1967 constitution: States that presidents can serve a maximum of two terms in office, but not back to back
- 2009 constitution: Lifts ban on serving consecutive terms, but presidents are still limited to two terms
- 2016 referendum (rejected by voters): Proposed dropping term limits
- 2017 constitutional court ruling: Scraps term limits
Since the court ruling applies not only to the president but to all elected officials, Evo’s cronies get to stay on, too.
