Thursday wasn’t a regular session in the country’s Legislative Assembly, as legislators almost came to blows over Presidenta Laura Chinchilla’s choice of wardrobe to attend the “marcha por la patria” in Guanacaste.

More than 30 minutes of Legislative floor time was devoted to the subject, as legislators from the Partido Liberacion Nacional (PNL) defended the Presidenta’s choice of dressed in white with a green belt around the waist.

Legislator Yolanda Acuña criticized the choice of the Presidenta’s wardrobe on this special occasion.

Yolonda Acuña, legislator for the PAC, led the attack saying that the presidenta should have been wearing colours representative of the country – red, white and blue – instead of the green belt. “There is a subliminal message there”, said Acuña.
