Bolivians are voting in a presidential election following last year's turmoil which ended the 13-year rule of left-wing President Evo Morales, APA reports citing BBC.

Mr Morales resigned and fled the country, having declared victory in a rigged vote subsequently annulled.

His Movement Towards Socialism (Mas) party candidate, Luis Arce, has been the consistent favourite to win.

The main challenger is former President Carlos Mesa, the centrist candidate of the Citizens' Community alliance.
