Marcelo Varela, associate director of the Carter Center's Americas Program, talks about election day in Bolivia. The Carter Center sent a short-term delegation to join the long-term observers for Bolivia's Dec. 6, 2009 presidential and legislative elections.
The election results determined who will develop the country's new institutional and legal framework as outlined in the new constitution, approved by referendum in January 2009.
