> President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada; Vice President Carlos Mesa

I thought Mesa was President now?

¿Ahora el presidente no es Sr. Mesa?


Yo Pense que el Presidente es el señor Evo Morales

Statement in "Executive Branch" paragraph[edit]

"Six months later, on December 18, 2005, the Socialist indigenous leader, Evo Morales, was elected president, to the general dismay of the United States government." - I do not think this phrase in bold is relevant to an overview article about the Politics of Bolivia, so I have removed it.

"Political pressure groups" heading[edit]

This heading is both POV and inaccurate. No organization refers to itself as a political pressure group. "Lobby group" would also be inappropriate, since they do more than lobby, and carry out activities of their own separate from any attempt to influence policy. I suppose you could call them NGOs, but this obscures their political and grassroots character. And social movements is more in line with how they refer to themselves.

This is also a somewhat uninformative section. Some kind of summary of the social movements and their role in politics/history is called for. It's also a bit bizarre to just append particular influential individuals names at the end of each entry. 134.153.182.238 (talk) 18:17, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Important notice[edit]

The government section of the "Outline of Bolivia" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.

When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.

Please check that this country's outline is not in error.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .

Thank you.

Re-electability?[edit]

The article claims that the 2009 referendum allowed re-election of the president, while the article President of Bolivia claims the opposite. So which is right? In case this article is right, it would be interesting to know if it allows re-election only once or several times. --Roentgenium111 (talk) 18:59, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
