  • Pre electoral: presidential elections in Costa Rica

    On Sunday, Costa Ricans return to the polls to elect their next president. They face a straight choice between José María Figueres, of the traditional Partido Liberación Nacional (PLN) party, and the ‘new politics’ being promised by Rodrigo Chaves from the Partido Progreso Social Democrático (PPSD). In a climate of high voter apathy and disillusion with politics, latest average polling figures give Chaves the lead with 44.46%, versus 34.02% for his PLN rival. However, with the percentage of undecided voters still high, Sunday’s results are hard to predict.
