Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had posted a diary, which I am integrating into this thread (and will move comments over too):

From BBC World Online, it appears that Bolivian socialist and indigenous leader Evo Morales may have won the presidency outright: Morales 'certain of Bolivia win'

Bolivian socialist leader Evo Morales has won enough votes in the country's presidential election to be installed as leader, electoral officials say.

The country's electoral court confirmed that with almost two-thirds of the votes counted, Mr Morales' share was enough for him to win.

If this is true, it is exciting news. But now the real work starts...what will Morales need to do to have success?
