Johnny Araya Acclaimed As PLN Presidential Candidate

araya-candidate

Almost four years ago Johnny Araya had to take a back seat to Laura Chinchilla for the leadership of the PLN party, losing the presidential nomination in a tight race.

Last night, Araya was acclaimed as the 2014 PLN candidate at a ceremony at the Balcon Verde in La Sabana.

The cost of admission was ¢30 million colones, the amount required to be paid to the party by candidates. The cost would have been higher if there had been other candidates, that would have forced a convention.
