The proposal, if adopted, would require a change in the Constitution and Electoral Code so that, for just cause and by means of plebiscites, citizens could decide if they want their elected representatives removed.

“In principle, citizens could decide on these elected positions, after two years of officials in office. It is a proposal subject to changes, but the important thing is that we begin to raise awareness of the need to address this issue in the face of Costa Rica’s bicentennial,” said the legislator.
