The  viceministro de Transportes (terrestre y seguridad vial) – Deputy Minister of Transport (road and road safety) – Rodrigo Rivera, will be the first to leave his post effective on April 15, and Luis Carlos Araya (viceministro de Transporte aéreo y marítimo) may be gone as early as the end of the month.

Rivaera cited “fatigue” after two years of “intense negotiations” with taxi drivers and porteadres as the reason for his resignation.

Meanwhile, Araya (brother of San José mayor and PLN presidential candidate) said he would be leaving his post to join his brother’s presidential campaign. No exact date for his leaving was made public.

Although the actions of the two deputy ministers may not be related to the San José-San Ramón road concession controversy that has had MOPT minister, Pedro Castro, under fire the last couple of days, the timing is suspicious.
