A new political party has emerged for the upcoming presidential elections in 2014, the Centro Democrático y Social (CDS), comprised of several ex members of the PUSC party.

The new group held its first national assembly on Sunday that was attended by two representative of the Tribunal Supremo de Elecciones (TSE) – elections tribunal, establishing the internal structure of the party to be able to be included in the 2014 elections ballot.

Forming part of the new party are former PUSC members like Luis Manual Chacon, one of the founders of the PUSC, and former PUSC legislators Ana Helena Chacón and Lorena Vásquez.

The president of the new party is Guillermo Vargas, was minister of Education in the Miguel Ángel Rodríguez administration (1998-2002).

According to La Nacion, the party is a reflection of the national reality and to propose an alternative to strengthen the country.

For decades Costa Rica was ruled alternatively by the PUSC and PLN parties. The last PUSC president was Able Pacheco (2002-2006).

In the last decade several political parties, like the PAC, ML and Frente Amplio, have changed the “traditional” politics of the country, allowing the PLN party with two consecutive terms and a possible third, while the PUSC party was destroyed politically in the 2006 elections, and crumbled even more in 2010 when it fielded a “pinch hitter” (party president Luis Fishman).
