President of Bolivia Evo Morales (C), along with Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera (C, left), speaks to the press at the Palacio Quemado of La Paz, Bolivia, 20 October 2019.

According to media reports Morales is facing a run-off after failing to secure enough votes.

Morales led Sunday’s election with 45.71% of votes compared to 37.84% for his closest rival Carlos Mesa, according to a quick count of 83% of votes by the country’s electoral board.

The preliminary results showed that Morales, South America’s longest-serving leftist leader, would have to go to a December 15 run-off with Mesa.
