Just to have a record of the official results of the elections. Above you can see the results for the presidential and congressional elections. These are without a doubt historical results. No party or president has governed, in recent times, with an absolut majority in the lower chamber. I am no fan of Morales, but I am impressed of the results.

Below you have the other significant results. For the first time in history (as far as I know) departmental prefects were directly elected by the people. Up until now, they had been appointed by the president in office. This has done a great deal for the advancement of the descentralization process in Bolivia and for the Bolivian democratic evolution.
