With a little over two weeks to go, the Partido Liberación Nacional (PLN) candidate, Johnny Araya, is back on top in the latest poll by CID-Gallup for Repretel.
In December a poll by the Political Studies and Investigation Centre of the Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR put Villalta slightly ahead of Araya. Click here for the report.
Following are the candidates for the Partido Acción Cuidadana (PAC), Luis Guillermo Solís, with 7% and the candidate for the Partido Unidad Social Cristiana (PUSC), Rodolfo Piza, with only 5% of the decided vote.
The poll was taken between January 8 and 13, taking in the response of 1.215 people and with a margin of error of 3.24%.
Under Costa Rica’s election rules, a winner must have 40% or greater of the vote. If the elections were held today, neither of top two candidates would have a clear win, forcing a run off elections in April.
