Autonomy plan gets nod in region

June 23, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Natural gas-rich Tarija became the fourth Bolivian province to declare autonomy from the government of leftist President Evo Morales when voters backed greater independence in a referendum, according to two unofficial private projections.

Autonomy backers waved the province's flag and celebrated in Tarija's capital of the same name after pollsters released results showing about 80% support. Electoral officials said there would be no final results until Wednesday.
