    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Supreme Electoral Tribunal of Costa Rica (TSE) has ruled out a reprint of the ballots to be used on April 6 for the second round, after a couple of them leaked to the press.

    “Reprint ballot is unnecessary, it is physically impossible and would risk the elections,” said TSE President, Luis Antonio Sobrado, in a speech.

    Some of the ballots to be used in the second round to elect the country’s president, were published by the TV show Extra and Extra Journal last week.

    The TSE confirmed last Friday that there was a theft of ballots and a few officials were removed from office on suspicion of committing the illegal act.

    The case is in the hands of the Public Ministry and under judicial investigation.

    The TSE President reiterated today that the institution has several security measures to prevent irregularities in the electoral process, some new to the second round, so that the purity of the vote is guaranteed.

    The judge acknowledged that the leak of the ballots is “unfortunate and painful” issue, but that in this situation has strengthened the TSE.

    In the second round Luis Guillermo Solís, the center-left Citizen Action Party (PAC), will face off against Johnny Araya, of the Social and the ruling National Liberation Party, who has officially retired from the election but whose name will still appear on the ballot. (ACAN-EFE)
