Movement for Sovereignty

The Movement for Sovereignty (Spanish: Movimiento por al Soberanía, MPS) is a leftist, indigenist Bolivian political party founded by dissidents of the Movement for Socialism (MAS-IPSP). Its leader, and fourth-place candidate for Governor of La Paz department in the 2010 regional election is Lino Villca. Other MAS-IPSP activists involved in founding the MPS include Óscar Chirinos, Miguel Machaca, and Rufo Calle.[1] The party's colors are blue, white, and yellow.

In the April 2010 elections, the MPS won the mayor's office in 6 municipalities: Achacachi, Mecapaca, Escoma, Sorata, Combaya, and Pucarani.[2]
