(CNN)The official results of Bolivia’s presidential elections are still to come, but centrist candidate Carlos Mesa has accepted defeat, all but clinching a Socialist victory.
The Socialist candidate Luis Arce is already receiving congratulatory messages. “We will have to lead the opposition. We will make Bolivia proud,” Mesa said on Twitter Monday morning. He also thanked the voters who had supported him.
The country’s interim President Jeanine Añez has said the results so far suggest Arce has won. “We still don’t have the official counting, but from the data we have, Mr. Arce and [vice-presidential candidate] Mr. [David] Choquehuanca have won the election. I congratulate the winners,” Añez said on Twitter.
