QCOSTARICA – President Luis Guillermo Solis seems to have thrown in the towel, looking to complete his mandate as President and then close the door to politics.

And although he believes it beneficial for a small country such as Costa Rica to “recycle” (re-elect) political leaders, he said he will not be seeking re-election.

In the lobby of the Jade Museum, in downtown San Jose, on Thursday, Don Luis said, “personally I will never run again.”

“My term as President of the Republic will come to an end of my mandate in 2015, I will not to seek the presidency or any other elected office,” emphasized Don Luis, to the dozens of journalists.

Solis, who was elected by 1.3 million votes in the second round voting of the 2014 presidential elections, did not elaborate on his decision.

He merely reiterated that in May 2018 he will close the door of his office at Casa Presidencial and with no intention ever opening it again.

Asked about his opinion on re-election, given that two former presidents – Oscar Arias and Jose Maria Figueres –  are considering running again for 2018, Don Luis said it would be beneficial for the incumbent President, if he wanted to, to lead the nation for another four years. This (re-election) would benefit the country, enabling good governance in having more time to fulfill campaign promises.

Currently, a sitting President has to sit out one election before being able to be re-elected.
