Some claim political experience, others their integrity and others for their plan for governing. In the end, the 2014 campaing is one of the most diverse and larget number of proposals in many years, for Costa Ricans to choose.

Sunday night the stage was taken up by Héctor Monestel, José Miguel Corrales, Luis Guillermo Solís, Otto Guevara, Carlos Avendaño and Walter Muñoz.

Questions posed to the presidential hopefulls range from issues of poverty in the country, to the soruce of wealth, the health system crisis, equal marriage an in-vitro fertilization.

There were also revealing confessions, like that of Otto Guveava, who declared himself a Christian and Carlos Avendaño who assures voters the political left wants an atheist state.

The candidates were largely applauded, while one group booed Avendaño.

In the end, however, voters were left with some clear and concise proposals, others general in nature and some even confusing.

Besides answering questions, the candidates had time to define why they should be elected president.

Tonight (Monday) the remaining seven candidates: Rodolfo Piza , Johnny Araya, José María Villalta, Sergio Mena, José Manuel Echandi, Oscar Lopez and Justo Orozco, will take to the stage.
