COSTA RICA NEWS – In a little over three months in office,  the Ministro de la Presidentia (Chief of Staff), Melvin Jiménez, will have his very own press agent to enhance his public image and a better relationship with the media.

On Monday, Arturo Gudiño, who started at his job last week, said he will focus on disseminating information on Jiménez’s work, projecting a positive image for the Minister and better his relationship with the press.

Gudiño is a 25 year veteran of journalism, returning to Costa Rica four months ago after working for the last four years as editor of Guatemala’s daily newspaper, the Prensa Libre.

Prior to the arrival of Gudiño,  Jimenez’s communications and relationship with the media was coordinated by journalist Cesar Barrantes of the Casa Presidenical press office.

Barrantes will  now work in the office of the vice-president, Ana Helena Chacón.

In July, the Attorney General’s Office said that the appointment of the Lutheran bishop, Melvin Jimenez, as Minister of the Presidency, is unconstitutional.

President Luis Guillermo Solís has refused to replace Jimenez, saying he will wait for a decision of the Constitutional Court to resolve the issue before making any decision.
