Bolivians on Sunday rejected leftist President Evo Morales' bid to seek a fourth term and potentially extend his presidency until 2025, local media reported. Already the country's longest serving leader, Morales lost a referendum 52.3 percent to 47.7 percent, according to Ipsos exit polls — unofficial figures cited on private ATB television. It was the worst — and first — national political defeat for Morales, who has led the Andean nation for a decade.
