Q COSTA RICA NEWS – If other leaders around the world can have their own television show, why not ‘Luisgui’, that is the word from Casa Presidencial (government house) announcing that President Luis Guillermo Solis will be starring in a weekly television show aired on the state public television network.

The minister of Communications, Mauricio Herrera, says the production by the National Radio and Television System (SINART), aims to bring Solís to the screens of open television, where on each episde will be interviewed “critically and without complacency” on a particular issue,  by a specialist selected by network.

Herrera explained that it is a program of the President’s accountability to the people. “It is a proposal that comes out of SINART. We think it can be very interesting as an exercise of accountability…a new format proposed by the Sinart,” added Herrera

In Latin America, former Venezuela president Hugo Chavez used his “Aló Presidente” program that ran continuously for 13 years, between 1999 and 2012, very successfully to reach the masses. The Chavez program ran on Venezuela’s public television in marathon transmissions of up to six hours.

In Ecuador, president Rafael Correa, since 2007 does his thing every Saturday morning in a three-hour program that is transmitted over 54 radio and television channels in the country.

In Brazil, Lula de Silva broadcast between 2003 and 2010 the “Desayuno con el Presidente” (breakfast with the president), which was continued by Dilma Rousseff, renamed to “Café con la presidenta” (Coffee with the president).
