Mixed Acceptance of Laura Chinchilla’s Final Report To The Nation


Legislators of the Partido Liberación Nacional (PLN) and the Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC) highlighted on Thursday as positive the work of Presidenta Laura Chinchilla.

But lawmakers of the Frente Amplio (FA) and the Partido Unidad Social Cristiana (PUSC) felt that the quality of the administration was reflected in the results (or lack of) of the PLN in the presidential elections.

The opinions were offered after the Presidenta gave her last and final report to the nation to the new group of legislators that took began their four year term yesterday.  Laura Chinchilla’s term ends on May 8.

PAC legislator and former presidential candidate, Ottón Solís, acknowledged the work of the Presidenta on the child care network and security, however, felt there were “ethical lapses” in the administration, citing as an example the case of wage increases lawmakers bestowed on themselves and the controversial trip to Peru on a private plane.

PLN legislator Rolando Gonzalez said the successes of Presidenta Chinchilla are measurable and she was a “victim of sexism.”

Legislator Edgardo Araya of the Frente Amplio said he believed that the Presidenta was talking about another country while listening to the 90 minute speech.

Rafael Ortiz of the PUSC added that the mismanagement of the country by Presidenta Chinchilla was clearly reflected in the outcome of the last presidential election that saw the PAC candidate receive 1.3 million votes, crushing the PLN.

Otto Guevara of the Movimiento Libertario acknowledged there were successes in the Chinchilla administration, however, there were mistakes that the Presidenta did not mention in her speech.

It was 10:15pm when the Presidenta ended her report before legislators, ministers and invited guests, who applauded her. Legislators of the Frente Amplio, PUSC and Libertario held their applause.

Presidenta Chinchilla will be handing over the presidential seat  PAC president-elect, Luis Guillermo Solís, on May 8.
