By: Wilberth Villalobos Castrillo, – With categorical words, Marcos Jimenez, mayor of Nicoya, referred to his possible nomination as legislator for Guanacaste for the National Liberation Party (PLN) during the 2014-2018 term.

Jimenez plans to make his candidacy official, depending on the outcome of the PLN internal election in San Jose on August 25th when the party’s candidates for legislator for Guanacaste are defined.

Jimenez would resign his current position as mayor, and the current vice mayor, Adriana Rodriguez, would occupy the position instead.

At the same time, Juan Marin will also be in the race to fill a  legislative seat after his resignation in late June as minister of decentralization.

Jimenez was optimistic facing elections within the party despite not having the support of President Laura Chinchilla. “Doña Laura has vetoed me; that’s my advantage,” he said.

He added the reason: “The public opinion is distrustful of the presidential work, nor does she have good recognition from Costa Ricans.”

Regarding his election rival, Juan Marin, the mayor said “I think he owes a debt to the country and especially to Guanacaste because as former minister he was not able to decentralize the country.”

The Voice tried to obtain the version of Juan Marin, but it was not possible to get ahold of him after several calls to his phone numbers.
