The president, Evo Morales, will seek a fourth term in the general election scheduled for October 20th 2019. The election will be closely contested, but The Economist Intelligence Unit expects Mr Morales to win against a divided opposition.

There is a risk of political violence amid what will be a divisive election campaign. The dominance of the ruling Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS) over the country's political institutions will lessen, notwithstanding Mr Morales's probable re-election.

A surge in public spending is expected in the run-up to the 2019 election, keeping the fiscal deficit wide at 7.9% of GDP in 2019, before fiscal adjustment is undertaken in earnest from 2020. After the election, policymakers will abandon the Bs6.91:US$1 currency peg.
