While both Alavardos have a common background in music — Fabricio, a 43-year-old journalist with a prominent career as a preacher and Christian singer and Carlos, 37 years old, sang in a progressive rock band — their politics are very different. Fabricio is a right-wing opponent of same-sex marriage, while Carlos is considered a center-left supporter of same-sex marriage.

Fabricio said he would withdraw Costa Rica from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights should be elected. “People said, ‘This is the person that I want to defend us in the face of international impositions,’” he said.

The 2018 Presidential election was dominated by the issue of same-sex marriage after the international court ruling said Costa Rica should allow same-sex marriage.

For deeply Roman Catholic Costa Rica, the gay marriage ruling came as an “external shock” to the campaign, political analyst Francisco Barahona told The Associated Press.
