BUENOS AIRES — President Evo Morales of Bolivia seems obsessed with staying in power.
In 2016, he called a referendum on a constitutional amendment that would have eased term limits in the country's Constitution and allowed him to run for a fourth time.

After 51 percent of the voters rejected the amendment, President Morales came up with a new plan. In September, his supporters in Congress brought a lawsuit in the Plurinational Constitutional Tribunal seeking to revoke the Constitution's term limit.
