Bolivian President Evo Morales was elected to a third term yesterday, with more than 60 per cent of the vote, avoiding a runoff against a divided opposition.

Morales, who took office in 2006 as the country's first indigenous president, finished nearly 40 points ahead of his nearest rival across the country.

They found the runner-up was wealthy cement magnate Samuel Doria Medina with around 20 per cent of the vote.

Morales's Movement Toward Socialism is also expected to win a strong majority in Congress to continue implementing leftist reforms that have so far included nationalising the oil and gas sectors and expanding welfare programs in one of Latin America's poorest countries.
