BUENOS AIRES, October 13. /TASS/. Exit polls in Bolivia's presidential elections suggest that the incumbent president Evo Morales has won the third consecutive term in office.

Official results had not yet been announced but an exit poll released by a local TV channel showed Morales, who heads the ruling Movement Toward Socialism party, received 61% of the vote. His closest rival, National Unity Front leader Samuel Doria Medina, was supported by 24%.

Votes are still being counted across the country. Six million people were eligible to vote in Bolivia and abroad. According to Bolivian laws, a presidential candidate needs to win more than 40% and finish at least 10% ahead of the nearest rival to avoid a second-round vote.

The victory means Morales, Bolivia’s first indigenous leader, will remain in office until January 2020.
