On January 22, 2006 Evo Morales was inaugurated as President of Bolivia. Morales is of Spanish and Aymara descent; Aymara is one of the First Nations. He is committed to reducing poverty and illiteracy in Bolivia, and his policies are characterized as leftist and socialist. He has implemented land reform and the redistribution of gas revenues. In 2008, Morales ordered the US Ambassador out of the country, accusing the ambassador of conspiring against democracy. Relations have improved during the Obama Administration, but we can only guess as to what’s next.
