  • Post electoral: presidential and legislative elections in Costa Rica

    On Sunday, presidential and legislative elections were held in Costa Rica – at stake, the head of the national executive branch and all 57 deputies of the Legislative Assembly for the period 2022-2026. Amid a record-low turnout the winning presidential candidate was former president José María Figueres, of the Partido Liberación Nacional (PLN), with 27.28% of the votes. As predicted with so many undecided voters in the run-up there were some surprises, among them a surge of support for Rodrigo Chaves of the Partido Progreso Social Democrático (PSD), who will now face off against Figueres in a runoff. At the legislative level, overall fragmentation looks set to continue although with an important shake-up of deputies.
