Since the report, political and social sectors demanded the departure of Soley for making the offer to Brenes, this while President Solís was on an official trip to China. One of the most vocal for the removal of Soley was PAC founder Ottón Solís, who said that if Soley was not removed, it meant the President had issued the order (for the Brenes appointment).

The same groups called also called on the resignation of the Ministro de la Presidencia, Melvin Jiménez.

On his return, the President said he was not aware of the offer made to Brenes and promised to investigate.
