Bolivian President Evo Morales ended his five-day hunger strike Tuesday, after Congress passed a new electoral law making it possible for him to seek re-election in December.
The new law approved early Tuesday calls for general elections to be held on December 6 and gives more seats in Congress to minority indigenous groups.
Mr. Morales is the country's first indigenous president.
President Morales started the hunger strike Thursday after accusing the opposition-controlled Senate of holding up passage of the measure.
Bolivians recently approved a new constitution that allows President Morales to seek a second, five-year term in December elections.
