Costa Rica News – As I just finished off watching one of the most boring Super Bowls I can remember in recent history where the Denver Broncos were flat out embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks; the Costa Rican election results began coming in. Although all the votes have not been counted it looks like we are headed to a run off.
Johnny Araya, the PLN candidate, and Luis Guillermo Solís, the PAC candidate, are in the lead for the Costa Rican national election results on Sunday. If it ends like this it would send them to run-off on April 6th.
With only a small % polling stations yet to be counted, Araya has received 29.55% of the vote and Solis 31.03%. In order to become president of Costa Rica 40% is required.
José María Villalta, received 17.13% of the vote and Otto Guevara of the Libertarian Movement 11.17%. They were followed by Rodolfo Piza,the PISC candidate at 5.98%.
The results were announced by Luis Antonio Sobrado, the president of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), who also found that 31.66% did not vote.
