BUENOS-AIRES, January 22. /TASS/. Evo Morales will be sworn into office as President of Bolivia for a third term on Thursday. The Bolivian president gained popularity due to measures taken to improve the economic situation in Bolivia; its GDP has tripled since Morales first took office on 2006; the number of the population under poverty level has declined from 38 to 18%; privatized enterprises of the energy sector have been returned to state ownership, income per capital has doubled, and budget contributions have grown by 1.6 times.
Evo Morales is a supporter of leftist ideas; he believes in a concept of socialism of the 21st century first put forward by his friend and fellow supporter, late president Hugo Chavez.
Evo Morales is a strong critic of the US politics; he pursues a course towards the development of cooperation with Russia.
Representatives from 40 states are expected to attend the inauguration ceremony of the Bolivian president.
