Reyes Villa, Manfred (1956–)

Reyes Villa, Manfred (1956–)

Bolivian politician Manfred Reyes, running as an outsider, lost the 2002 presidential elections by less than 2 percent. Born in La Paz, he served in the military before entering politics. He was mayor of Cochabamba from 1993 to 2002, formed the New Republican Force (NFR) in 1995, and sparked the "water wars" of 2000. He entered a governing coalition with the Nationalist Revolutionary Movement (MNR), but his withdrawal in 2003 precipitated the president's resignation. Rather than run again in 2005, he supported Jorge Quiroga for president and successfully ran for the Cochabamba prefecture.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
