The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – A little over a month before the second round of voting, presidential candidates have been outlining possible officials for the new government.
Araya confirmed Friday that Ayales Edgar, current Minister of Finance, will continue in office if he manages a win on April 6. He added that he already asked the economist, Francisco de Paula Gutiérrez, to regain control of the Central Bank in a potential mandate and Lorenzo Guadamuz, Guanacaste educator, to take control of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP).
This was accompanied by a renovation of his campaign team to include Jorge Pattoni, Leah Netzer, Silvia Lara, Carlos Dengo, Marco Cerconne and Danilo Morales.
Luis Guillermo Solis’s spokesman has not disclosed the names of potential future cabinet members.
However, it has been unofficially declared that Monica Segnini, current president of the Chamber of Exporters of Costa Rica (Cadexco) and former candidate for Vice-President by the PAC in 2010 could take the ranks of the Ministry of Foreign Trade (Comex) in a new government.
Nearby Sources close to the party and Solis’s campaign have denied this information, saying it will not be until after April 6, in case of an election victory, to announce who will form the new government.
Some believe this strategy could be counterproductive to the interests of the party.
