A Bolivian court has given a green light for President Evo Morales to seek a fourth term in office, which opponents say is unconstitutional, Al Lazeera reports.

"The full chamber of the Supreme Electoral Court, by virtue of the jurisdiction and competence exercised by law," approved nine candidates for primary elections in January, including Morales, according to the decision, which was read out at a press briefing.

The decision on Tuesday night came just as opposition to Morales's candidacy was building, with protesters marching in the capital, La Paz, last week.

A general strike was called for next Thursday to oppose Morales' re-election bid.
