Some legislators slept through the President's speech to the Legisalture on Monday.

QCR – Legislators sleeping at their “curul” (bench) is nothing new. But during the new legislative president’s speech?

Such as the case Monday when several legislators were caught on camera sleeping, some even snoring (roncando in Spanish), during the speech by Antonio Alvarez Desanti, commenting on the speech by Costa Rica President Luis Guillermo Solis, on his report of his second year in office.

The video was broadcast live.

Making light of the situation, the social media was abuzz with comments.

“Poor legislators”, was one headline. Another comment, “they (legislators) work so hard for the country”, and “the people do not understand that when they (legislators) nod off or sleep at their bench is because they worked the whole night before for the people of Costa Rica”.

Legislators make about ¢4 million colones monthly (US$7.500 dollars), plus travel (including trips abroad), meals, gasoline and free cellular phones, among other things.

“But that (their compensation) is nothing compared to the great efforts they make our behalf,” was the sarcastic post by El Chamuco on his blog, El Infierno en Costa Rica (Hell in Costa Rica).
