    This political scientist reached 46.7% strongly support, nearly doubling the votes received by her nearest contender: Otton Solis of the Citizens Action Party (25.1%)

    Otto Guevara of the Libertarian Movement candidate, came in third with 20.8%.

    The advantage that the verdiblanca achieved since the first preliminary results released by the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), at 8:30 p. m. Motivated the rivals to make an early admission of defeat.

    The trend was maintained at 10:54 p. m. with 84% of the votes counted. According to a telephone survey conducted last night by Unimer for La Nacion, four out of ten people who were supportive of Chinchilla seek “to ensure continuity of the current government.”
