COSTA RICA NEWS – By one vote over the others, Montserrat Solano Carboni, was elected by legislators as the new Defensora de los Habitantes (Ombudswoman) for the next four years.

Solano had the support of the Frente Amplio (FA), Partido Liberación Nacional (PLN) and Acción Ciudadana (PAC) parties to obtain the 29 votes required to be elected.

Although the new boss at the Defensoria de los Habitantes (Ombudsman) has not lived in the country for the last decade, she claims to be knowledgeable of national events and major problems faced by Costa Ricans.

“It will allow me to see problems from another perspective, the legislators were to ones to decide if they wanted someone who has living in the country for the past 10 years or someone who has left the country to train, gain experience and share with other cultures,” said Solano.

The new Ombudswoman says one of her priorities is the fight against discrimination, which brings with it violation of other rights.

Solano must be sworn in on Thursday, but given that Solano is currently in Europe, the president of the Legislative Assembly, Henry Mora, said the swearing-in ceremony will be delayed until next week.
