The Partido Unidad Social Cristiana (PUSC), once a major political force in the country, is gearing up for the 2014 presiential elections with the choice of two candidates to choose from.
Members of the PUSC party will be choosing today between Dr. Rodolfo Hernandez, director of the Hosptial Nacional de Niños (Children’s Hospital) and Rodolfo Piza, who was president of the CSS in the Miguel Ángel Rodríguez (1998-2002) administration.
Both candidates vow to return the CCSS to the good times.
The last time the PUSC had a doctor for its leader was in the name of Dr. Abel Pacheco, who was elected president for the period 2002-2006.
Following, led by Ricardo Toledo and last by Luis Fishman, the last minute candidate in the 2010 elections, the party has fallen apart. Fishman ran under the slogan, “el menos malo” (the least bad).
Adding to the party’s fall is two former PUSC party presidents tried and convicted for corruption, Rafael Angel Rodriguez and Rafael Anged Calderón.
