The aim of Corrales is form a grand coalition of opposition parties to face the ruling party.

In his opinion, Corrales says the only option for change is to dethrone the PLN power. He acknoledges that the task is difficult, but not impossible, if there is will.

In the past, the Patria Nueva has held meetings to form a coalition with the Frente Amplio and the  Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC). However, the pact is in hold as the PAC renews its party structure now that Ottón Solís is not their front man.

Corrales ran for president in 1998 losing to Miguel Ángel Rodríguez Echeverría (PUSC).

Corrales was a strong opponent to the Óscar Arias Sánchez nomination for the 2006 elections. He was also a strong opponent to the Free Trade Agreement with the United States. He served as legislator on several occasions, 1974-1978, 1986-1990 and 2002-2006.
