New Resignation of Costa Rican Presidential Candidate Deplored

Today Costa Rica News – Costa Rican presidential candidates criticized harshly the second resignation in less than a week of Rodolfo Hernandez, aspirant to the presidency for the opposition Partido Unidad Social Cristiana (PUSC).

Quoted by the newspaper La Prensa Libre, Oscar Lopez, member of the Partido Accesibilidad sin Exclusión (PASE) party, called “this exercise of politics absolutely shameful.”

Luis Guillermo Solis, of Partido Acción Cuidadana (PAC), considered the matter a “novela” (Spanish for Soap Opera) and said it is generating great uncertainty among PUSC followers.

Justo Orozco, of Partido Renovación Costarricense  (Costa Rican Renovation) party made statements in that reference. To him, Hernandez’ resignation, his later return and the new resignation “is something really embarrassing.”

Hernandez resigned for the first time on Thursday (last week), after denouncing betrayals by some PUSC leaders, returned on Saturday,  and resigned again on Wednesday (this week), after mentioning intransigencies by his party’s executive committee.

PUSC is one of the traditional parties in the country, but has been undergoing a crisis since the government of Abel Pacheco (2002-2006).

General elections in Costa Rica will be held on February 2, 2014 to elect a president, two vice presidents and 57 legislators of the Legislative Assembly (Congress).
