In an impromptu press conference in the hallways of the Aurola Holiday Inn hotel in downtown San José, Piza said he considers Dr. Hernandez his friend and would like him to be part of his campaign, though he did not give details in what capacity.

Piza also said he acknowledged the work for the party of three former presidents, Rafael Angel Calderon, Miguel Angel Rodriguez and Abel Pacheco. However, he was clear that both Calderon and Rodriguez should stay away from the campaign because the two still have open judicial proceedings.


Piza acknowledged that there were mistakes made in the party, but “they are in the past.”
