    In his resignation letter, Hernandez said he is removed from the political fray because, “Few ever understood that this was a fight for my country, not against people or groups.”

    Hernandez resigned from candidacy for the second time in less than a week, since last Thursday he announced his resignation due to betrayal, selfishness, envy and “backstabbing” within the PUSC.

    Hernandez said he also resigned for the welfare of his family and that owners of PUSC “have ruined the dream of hundreds of thousands of Costa Ricans who believe in the fundamental values ​​of the democratic system.”

    On Saturday the PUSC will hold a national assembly that will formally announce Hernandez’s resignation and create the ability to elect a new presidential candidate for the elections next February 2.

    According to surveys, the favorite for the elections is the former mayor of San Jose, Johnny Araya, candidate of the ruling National Liberation Party (PLN, Social).
