Bolivia states to vote on split (BBC, 5/31/08)

Two provinces in Bolivia are set to vote in a referendum on whether to declare autonomy from President Evo Morales's socialist government.

The votes on Sunday have been organised by conservative opponents in the lowland provinces of Beni and Pando.

They hope to follow the lead of the country's economic powerhouse, Santa Cruz, which voted for an autonomy package four weeks ago.
