Segnini, says he will boot out anyone who hinders or is a vago (deadbeat) and is calling on collaboration of the workers themselves and the different institutions are its command.

Moving forward, 0n Friday, Segnini, appointed a new director of the Policia de Tránsito,  naming a 32 year veteran of the force, Mario Calderón.

The replacement of Germán Marín, who held the post during the Arias administration (2006-2010) and the last year of the Chinchilla administration (2010-2014), is normal. New governments tend to replace key people in top posts.
