QCOSTARICA – Following two consecutive mandates, the Partido Acción Cuiadana (PAC) is about to receive a beating in the presidential election on February 6, its candidate, Welmer Ramos, is not expected to get more than 1% of the vote, according to the polls on the presidential campaign have been consistent for almost two months.

Welmer Ramos is the bearer of a party that seeks to win three consecutive elections, something that has never happened in Costa Rica

Part of the problem for the PAC would be that many supporters are disillusioned Ramos, a candidate perceived as backward on some social issues, such as therapeutic abortion and same-sex marriage.

These are the “paquistas” (PAC’s) triumphs of Carlos Alvarado and Guillermo Solís in 2018 and 2014, respectively.
