Ministers, Deputy Ministers and CEO’s of public institutions are expected to abide by a strict set of rules of conduct by President Luis Guillermo Solís.

Among the items that will be a no-no for the new ministers who start at their new jobs tomorrow are no plaques with their name on public works or receive gifts, all with the aim of combating influence peddling and “clienelismo”, a Spanish term that can best described as not offering preferred services to “clients”.
