QCOSTARICA – Former president Laura Chinchilla Miranda (2010-2014) lamented the decision Friday of President Luis Guillermo Solis to lift the veto on the Labour Reform Act (Ley de Reforma al Código Procesal Laboral).

Through a message on her Facebook page, Doña Laura, said that with this decision, the Government chose to benefit the public sector controlled by the umions rather than citizens.

Chinchilla vetoed the law in October 2012 because it would allow strikes in essential services and would permit the governmen to hire workers to replace strikers.

The former president added that she is confident that the Constitutional Court will issue a reversal.

Objecting also to the Solís decision is legislator, former presidential candidate and founder of the Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC), Otton Solís.

On his Facebook page, the legislator said that a society that wishes to progress chooses mechanisms of dialogue and social peace, instead of stimulating strikes and solving solutions in the streets.
