(QCOSTARICA) President Luis Guillermo Solis, “fell in love with airplanes and just goes around flying on an airplane,” says the legislator and founder of the Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC), Ottón Solís.

The legislator raised the strong criticism in a speech made Tuesday during a session of the Legislative Financial Affairs Committee, where he proposed to cut ¢17 billion colones from the 2017 national budget.

Legislator Solis (no relation to President Solis) filed 12 motions to the draft budget looking to reduce spending in areas like consulting, propaganda and publicity, was well as travel.

Solis, in defence of his cost cutting motions, said that half of the travel abroad (by the President) are “a pasear” (to go on vacation).

“One in six days he goes on a trip and only half are valid, like the trip to the United Nations…but not stay for the entire week…accompanying (Juan Manuel) Santos (President of Colombia) in signing the peace agreement, but not to spend three days there (in Colombia),” added the legislator.

To the astonishment of legislators, advisors and audience, the founder of the PAC also said that “only a fanatic” could deny that President Solis travels a lot and that was exactly what he denounced of the previous governments of the Liberación Nacional (PLN) and Unidad Social Cristiana (PUSC) parties.
