After running for president in three unsuccessful attempts (almost winning one), former presidential candidate for the Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC), Ottón Solís, head back to the Legislative function in the 2014 elections.

Solis is the founder, president and three time presidential candidate of the Citizens’ Action Party (Partido Accion Ciudadana), graduating from the University of Costa Rica in 1976 and gained a Master’s Degree in Economics from the University of Manchester in 1978. He is currently an Eminent Scholar at the University of Florida.

In the 2002 Costa Rican presidential elections, Solís broke the prevailing bipartisan political model to occupy a strong third place in the Presidential race. A virtual tie between former President Óscar Arias and Solís forced a recount in the 2006 presidential election. Ultimately, Arias won, though by only a few thousand votes over the 40 percent threshold required to avoid a runoff.

Epsy Campbell, who aspired to take the leadership of the PAC after Solís stepped down, will also run again for a legislative seat.

Otton and Epsy are two of the seven candidates nominated y PAC presidential candidate, Luis Guillermo Solís (no relation to Otton), at a press conference Thursday.

The former PAC leader and legislator will represent San José, the other five nominees will represent Cartago, Puntarenas, Heredia and Alajuela.

The appointment of the seven is expected to be ratified this weekend at PAC’s national assembly session, when the rest of appointments will be named.

The 2014 elections are to be held on Sunday, February 2.
