The appearance of pockets of the Bolivian indigenous population who are withdrawing the support that they have always given the administration of President Evo Morales has given the political right some cause for celebration. After six years in the opposition, the old structures that historically dominated and led the country have been unable to reinvent themselves, to create a new party, or to generate a program capable of attracting citizens and presenting itself as a valid alternative to the governing Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS). But the emergence of indigenous leaders who, for various reasons, broke with their former leader is giving the white descendants of European colonizers breathing space.
